Guess what? You can fight City Hall. Matt Tyrnauer's excellent documentary, Citizen Jane: Battle for the City, shows how it's done, a call to arms that could not be more timely in this chaotic political moment.
While Citizen Jane is prescribed by a very specific time and place, it does offer up some tactics for the continuing struggle to preserve the idea that cities should be for everyone and not simply those who can afford to live there.
The key to this excellent documentary about writer and activist Jane Jacobs in New York City is the way it visually expresses the ideas in her groundbreaking book The Death And Life Of Great American Cities.
What is ostensibly a niche subject matter is rendered very watchable due, in part, to how much of what Jacobs passionately advocated half a century ago is still very much at the forefront of many concerned urbanites.
