Citizen Jane: Battle for the City
Jane Jacobs, author and savior of several historic neighborhoods threatened with demolition, has gone to the books as the most influential person in history of city planning and architecture. Citizen Jane follows her hardest battle: taking on New York City’s most ruthless power broker Robert Moses, fighting for the survival of neighborhoods such as Greenwich Village, Soho and Little Italy. Matt Tyrnauer’s last feature documentary, Valentino: The Last Emperor, was one of the highest-grossing documentaries of 2008. In Citizen Jane: Battle for the City, he takes on another artist of undeniable historical importance.
