Citizen Jane is coming to Brisbane

Citizen Jane: Battle for the City – the movie about Jane Jacobs – is coming to Brisbane as part of the Brisbane International Film Festival.

Jane Jacobs’ urban planning approach came from the perspective of interaction and community, not isolation and expediency. In a titanic struggle, with the streets of New York City as the battleground, Matt Tyrnauer’s documentary is packed with Jacobs’ architectural and social observations that are philosophical, prophetic, and fired directly at city hall in the most inspiring of ways.
