Citizen Jane: Battle for the City
Citizen Jane High Res Official Still Web

Dir. Matt Tyrnauer, USA, 2016, 92 mins, Cert: PG.

This internationally acclaimed documentary plots out the story of urban activist Jane Jacobs’ fight against Robert Moses’ plans for the redevelopment of New York City in the 1960s. Seen through the eyes of one woman fighting for a more ‘democratic’ approach to urbanisation Tyrnauer’s film presents an interesting take on the conflict between idealism and capitalism.
