Name: Citizen Jane: Battle for the City Film Screening & Panel Discussion
Date: May 18, 2017
Time: 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM CDT
Event Description:
Please join us for the opening-night screening of Citizen Jane: Battle for the City, followed by a panel discussion with special guests and moderator Melissa Lee (New Orleans Redevelopment Authority).

Citizen Jane is 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.
