Jane Jacobs remains the most important voice on cities in the world. From her first book, THE DEATH AND LIFE OF GREAT AMERICAN CITIES, to her last, WARNING: DARK AGE AHEADher ideas continue to stimulate. They stimulated me. I met Mrs. Jacobs in 1968 in Toronto when she and her family first came to my programs. I knew her for two years before I knew her as a writer. Naturally, I read her books. More importantly I put her ideas into practice. One of her sons told me, “My mother adored you.” “And I your mother,” I replied. Following this film I will speak about my friend and mentor, Jane Jacobs.—Reg Hartt.

The night will be launched by the story of the “Occupy” siege that happened in Toronto in 2011, as told by a young atcivist who lived it all.
