Citizen Jane film & panel with biographer Robert Kanigel

Oct 10, 2017 @ 7:00 pm  —  Oct 10, 2017 @ 10:00pm

Featuring the film Citizen Jane: Battle For The City and post-film discussion with Jacobs biographer Robert Kanigel and local architect Steve McHenry, moderated by Portsmouth City Councilor, Chris Dwyer.

Presented in affiliation with PS21: Portsmouth Smart Growth for the 21st Century

The Film: Citizen Jane: Battle For The City (NR, 1h32m, US): A timely tale of what can happen when engaged citizens fight the power for the sake of a better world. Arguably no one did more to shape our understanding of the modern American city than Jane Jacobs, the visionary activist and writer who fought to preserve urban communities in the face of destructive development projects. Director Matt Tyranuer (Valentino: The Last Emperor) vividly brings to life Jacobs’ 1960s showdown with ruthless construction kingpin Robert Moses over his plan to raze lower Manhattan to make way for a highway, a dramatic struggle over the very soul of the neighborhood.
