Citizen Jane: Battle for the City

No longer available

Aotea Square


Coinciding with Urban Walking Festival, this fascinating documentary about urban planning will inspire people to celebrate their city and the places and people who surround it.  

Based on activist, Jane Jacob’s book, The Death and Life of Great American Cities, the documentary film explores Jacobs’ fight to stop powerbroker and developer, Robert Moses from demolishing established housing areas in 1960’s New York with high-rise buildings and superhighways.  

Take a stroll on the Urban Walking Festival then relax your feet with a free screening of Citizen Jane: Battle for the City kicking off at 6pm. Please note, we recommend bringing blankets and chairs to sit on to ensure the ultimate cosy experience!
