2016, USA, 92 min

Reviews

Citizen Jane: Battle for The City details the revolutionary thinking of Jane Jacobs and the origins of her magisterial 1961 treatise The Life and Death of American Cities. The film is a story about our global urban future in which nearly three fourths of the world's population will live in cities by the end of this century.
