In the wake of the 2015 death of Freddie Gray while in police custody, Baltimore was a city on the edge. Peaceful protests and destructive riots erupted in the immediate aftermath of Grays death, reflecting the deep divisions between authorities and the community -- and underscoring the urgent need for reconciliation. Directed by Sonja Sohn, one of the stars of the acclaimed HBO series The Wire, Baltimore Rising follows activists, police officers, community leaders and gang affiliates who struggle to hold Baltimore together while the city awaits the fate of the six police officers involved in the incident. The inspiring, 93-minute film chronicles the determined efforts of people on all sides who fight for justice and a better city, sometimes coming together in unexpected ways and discovering a common humanity. Thought-provoking and timely, Baltimore Rising exposes the strife that gripped Baltimore following Freddie Grays death, and highlights the citys determination to rise above longstanding fault lines in a distraught and damaged community.
