ABOUT THE FILM

When New York was being ravaged by ruthless redevelopment, Jane Jacobs blew the whistle. With her prescient 1961 bestseller “The Death and Life of Great American Cities,” the activist often called a “genius of common sense” sent shockwaves through the urban planning world, despite her lack of formal education and experience. Jacobs changed forever the way we think about cities, inspiring generations to take another look at their surroundings and question received wisdom. Examining the city of today through the lens of one of its greatest champions, CITIZEN JANE was nominated for Best Documentary at the 2017 Miami Film Festival
