Citizen Jane: Battle for the City - United States Theatrical Release

In theaters soon, in 1960 Jane Jacobs’s book The Death and Life of Great American Cities sent shockwaves through the architecture and planning worlds, with its exploration of the consequences of modern planners’ and architects’ reconfiguration of cities.

Citizen Jane: Battle for the City - Norsk Film Institutt Screening (Oslo)

The brutal and unfriendly modernist urban development had raged for many decades when journalist and activist Jane Jacobs stood up against what she saw as a destruction of all that created community in a city. The big battlefield became New York, and the arch enemy was head of urban planning, Robert Moses, known for his megalomaniac plans, including the demolition of entire Manhattan neighborhoods. Jane challenged the birds eye view of the city, and argued that it is on street level that the organism of the city is created. Sadly, this problem is just as valid today, fifty years on. Who has the right to the city?

Citizen Jane: Battle for the City - TIFF Screening (Scotia 10)

This timely and inspirational documentary chronicles legendary writer and urban activist Jane Jacobs’ battle to save historic NYC neighbourhoods from the draconian redevelopment plans of ruthless power broker Robert Moses in the 1960s.

Jane Jacobs, author of The Death and Life of Great American Cities, helped change the way we look at urban living. Her writing and activism had a direct impact on neighbourhoods in Manhattan and Toronto, and influenced city planners all over the world.

Now, in the centenary of her birth, Citizen Jane focuses on Jacobs' most dramatic battles in the 1960s: when she went up against New York City's most ruthless power broker, Robert Moses. At stake was whether the city's historic neighbourhoods of Greenwich Village, Soho, and Little Italy would stay intact or be split apart by expressways.

Filmmaker Matt Tyrnauer previously directed Valentino: The Last Emperor and is a contributing writer for Vanity Fair. In Citizen Jane, he takes us into the heyday of magazine journalism, a male-dominated world where Jacobs excelled while raising a family. Despite her lack of a college degree, she immersed herself into the world of urban planning and became an outspoken critic of its leading trends. While developers like Moses focused on automobiles and expressways, Jacobs championed sidewalks and foot traffic.

Moses amassed immense political power in the innocuous-sounding position of New York City Parks Commissioner. By personal fiat, he had levelled neighbourhoods to build the Cross Bronx Expressway and other massive projects.

Tyrnauer chronicles how Jacobs marshaled a movement against Moses in the early 1960s, when he sought to push through the Lower Manhattan Expressway that would demolish blocks and displace thousands. Afterwards, Jacobs moved to Toronto where she joined the effort to stop the Spadina Expressway and lived for almost four decades.

Citizen Jane delivers a timely lesson in the power of the people to push back against bullying developers.
