Jane Jacobs’ The Death and Life of Great American Cities sent shockwaves through the architecture and planning worlds in 1961. Jacobs was also an activist involved in many fights to stop ‘master builder’ Robert Moses from running roughshod over New York. As urbanisation moves to the front of the current global agenda, this film retraces their battles and examines the city of today through the lens of one of its greatest champions.
