Q&A with the director after the film.

Inner City Rats follows a set of young misfits, petty thieves, and low level criminals. Structured as an album, each track weaves together glimpses into the lives of New York City’s “rats”.


Short film Churros directed Emilie Blythe McDonald (13 min, USA) will play before Inner City Rats.

CHURROS is a dramatic short film about Jo-Jo, a 15 year-old Mexican-American boy who lives with his street vendor single mother and little sister in Brooklyn. He break-dances with a crew and dreams of being “the illest” b-boy in the world, but a local gangster attempts to lure him away. One night, Jo-Jo is forced to make one of the most important decisions of his life.
