The Body Politic

Book Tickets
A portrait of Brandon Scott, Baltimore’s youngest Black Mayor, during his mayoral campaign and first year presiding over a city plagued by homicide.
What happens following an electoral victory? When does change begin? The Body Politic explores these themes through its portrait of Scott, during his leadership campaign and first year as Mayor of Baltimore, a city plagued by funding shortages and escalating crime. Director Gabriel Francis Paz Goodenough captures Scott in action, whether he’s tackling press conferences, dealing with a variety of political opponents, watching the trial of George Floyd’s killer, or spending time with Baltimore’s residents and groups with a vested interest in saving their city. Scott is viewed by some as a contender for the national stage – those who have the audacity to dream that his commitment to healing a fractured yet resilient city is a hope they can believe in.
