Synopsis: Citizen Jane: Battle for the City: is a story about our global urban future, in which nearly three-fourths of the world’s population will live in cities by the end of this century. It’s also a story about America’s recent urban past, in which bureaucratic, “top down” approaches to building cities have dramatically clashed with grassroots, “bottom up” approaches.  The film brings us back mid-century, on the eve of the battles for the heart and soul of American cities, about to be routed by cataclysmically destructive Urban Renewal and highway projects.

Matt Tyrnauer says, “Jacobs, whose centenary will be celebrated on May 4, is something of a spiritual soul mate to Sanders. The parallels between their underlying ideologies are striking. And as Sanders’s popularity and fame continues to skyrocket, it’s time to give his fellow New Yorker, Jacobs, her due. Jacobs’s fight for Washington Square Park—and for the people’s right to the city—is a story I tell in Citizen Jane (which is produced by one of New York’s newer grassroots activists, High Line co-founder Robert Hammond)”.

 

REVIEW:

“Jane Jacobs fought against Robert Moses’ plans to develop Lower Manhattan. This documentary revisits their legendary feud.” - New Yorker
