Citizen Jane: Battle for the City - Arkitekturfilm Oslo Screening

This year's opening film, Citizen Jane: Battle for the City is a new documentary about Jane Jacobs and New York residents' struggle against Robert Moses The Expressway and other modernization projects. If the man in the street vs. the man in the car, to put it that way. Jane Jacobs criticism of modernism, and its view of the city is fundamental. The irony is that with today's challenges, it is Jane Jacobs who emerges as the contemporary.
