Citizen Jane: Battle for the City (2016)

“Citizen Jane: Battle for the City” — (USA, 2016, 92 min..)

Arguably no one did more to shape understanding of the modern American city than Jane Jacobs, the visionary activist and author of “The Death and Life of Great American Cities” who fought to preserve urban communities in the face of destructive development projects.

Here, she fights against the 1960s ruthless New York City redevelopment projects of urban planner Robert Moses.
