This internationally acclaimed documentary plots out the story of urban activist Jane Jacobs’ fight against Robert Moses’ plans for the redevelopment of New York City in the 1960s.

Seen through the eyes of one woman fighting for a more ‘democratic’ approach to urbanisation director Matt Tyrnauer’s film presents an interesting take on the conflict between idealism and capitalism.
