Citizen Jane: Battle for the City - The Martha's Vineyard Film Festival Screening

CITIZEN JANE: BATTLE FOR THE CITY
8:45 p.m. at the Chilmark School     SPECIAL PRICING!

Vanity Fair writer and MVFF alumnus Matt Tyrnauer deftly directs this timely and inspirational documentary chronicling the life of legendary urban activist Jane Jacobs and her crusade to save New York City neighborhoods from draconian redevelopment. She went toe to toe with Robert Moses, one of the most powerful urban planners in American history. Her playbook for defeating him, and her ideas for community-based development, have never been more relevant.
