RUST: how to break the chains of poverty in U.S. inner cities. RUST is the third documentary in Marylou & 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. 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.
