CITIZEN JANE: BATTLE FOR THE CITY

United States | 2016 | Matt Tyrnauer

CITIZEN JANE: BATTLE FOR THE CITY

Journalist and urban activist Jane Jacobs (1916-2006) was the author of the seminal 1961 book The Death and Life of Great American Cities. The visionary Jacobsperceived the vitality and diversity of life in America’s urban neighborhoods at a time when most city planners (like New York’s “master builder” Robert Moses) saw only unsightly slums that needed to be razed and then replaced with sterile planned communities of monolithic high rises. During the early 1960s, Jacobs went head to head with the autocratic and near-omnipotent Moses over his plan to build an expressway through the middle of Manhattan. And she won. This new film tells her important, inspiring, and still relevant story. “Pulses with contemporary resonance.” –Variety. DCP. 92 min.
