In 85 minutes, "RUST" presents the history of Rust Belt poverty, detailing industrialization and de-industrialization and also racism and mass incarceration, using the city of Newark, New Jersey as microcosm. It explores solutions to inner city inter-generational poverty through the voices of scholars, economists, physicians, activists, and the community.
"RUST" is the third documentary in Marylou and Jerome Bongiorno's 3Rs Trilogy on Urban America, following the success of critically acclaimed, award-winning, national PBS broadcast "Revolution '67" on riots/rebellions of the 1960s and "The Rule" on urban school reform.
