After the AGM we will screen the 2016 feature documentary
“Citizen Jane – Battle for the City”
This inspiring feature film details the successful struggle of activist Jane Jacobs and local NY residents against the motorways and soulless hi-rise blocks proposed by despotic planner Robert Moses in post-WW11 New York City.
“Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody” – Jane Jacobs
“A celebration of grassroots activism and a cry for community” – The Observer
“Citizen Jane: Battle for the City review – New York’s urban planning war retold” (Guardian, 4.5.17)
“A new documentary leaves Jane Jacobs trapped in the rubble of old arguments” (LA Times, 13.4.17)
