Baltimore--tomorrow I'll be moderating a panel called "Rat Problem, People Problems: Urban Health, Baltimore, and Rat Film" after the 7:15 screening of RAT FILM.
Panelists include Dr. Dawn Day Biehler, author of "Pests in the City", Dr. H. Lovell Smith, a professor of sociology at Loyola, Dr. Graham T. Mooney, professor of the history of medicine at Johns Hopkins, and Dr. Janice Stevenson, the Vice President of Total Health Care here in Baltimore.
This is a really cool opportunity to have a community discussion about many of the social and political issues raised in RAT FILM and to trace their continued influence in Baltimore and beyond. I'm personally really excited (and terrified/intimidated) because I'll be sharing the stage with many of the brilliant minds that inspired this film.
Screening starts at 7:15p, if you've already seen it and still wanna come to the panel, that should get going around 8:40. Hope to see some of you there!
thanks to everyone who came out to 'rat film' and made it an amazing opening weekend. it was the first time harold got to see it alongside an audience, and he definitely felt the love. this blurry picture sure means a lot.
Rat Film opens in theaters today.
grateful for friends who have always been there, grateful for family who gave me every chance to follow my path, grateful for a partner who knows when to support and when to challenge, to always love through both, grateful for the collaborators and travelers and chance encounters this film has brought together, grateful for the privilege to move forward, acknowledging that whatever success is paved on the unrealized potential of so many, grateful for the conversation to learn how to change that path, grateful for introspection, listening for ways to give that back, listening, listening, learning, changing, growing, giving, acknowledgement of a dire need for action beyond words and an accountability for all action.
tra la la la la man~~~

(FULL LINK IN BIO) I was 17 when I went to my first @dandeacon show. It was then that Dan showed me what an arts scene is and could be—not just what you make but who you make it with, how you support each other, how you build out from that into every aspect of your life. Over the past ten years, I’ve gone from fan to casual acquaintance to collaborator, and now, I feel as if I’ve gained a very close and trusted friend for life.
Working with Dan on the score for RAT FILM has been one of the greatest experiences of my professional life. Getting to hang with Dan these past few years, has been one of the greatest gifts of my personal life, and the fulfillment of that same love and community I so admired as a 17-year-old kid coming to Baltimore for the first time.
So, with all that being said, I couldn’t be prouder to announce that Dan’s original score for RAT FILM will be coming out on October 13th (with a limited run of vinyl!). To commemorate this announcement, @dominorecordco put out a short doc outlining just some of the incredible work that Dan put into this. All film-stuff aside, I love the music that he made, and will be forever inspired knowing the process it took to make it.
Big thanks to @tylerwdavis and Danielle Damico for putting this together!
