    It’s 1960s New York City.
     
    Jane Jacobs sheds the light on the gruesome destruction of historical NYC neighbourhoods, by merciless power broker Robert Moses. His plan is to build expressways & displace thousands of families from Greenwich Village, Soho, and Little Italy. Only Jane Jacobs stood up against him, rallying the people behind her & giving a voice to those who had no one to turn to for help. 
     
    Thrilling & inspirational, this timely documentary is a lesson to all in how the unity of the people can move and win against corporate greed and an elitist society.

    Best of the Fest!

    When fashionistas need inspiration, they reach for Italian Vogue.

    Director Francesco Carrozzini creates an intimate portrait of his mother, Franca Sozzani, the legendary editor-in-chief of Italian Vogue. From the ridiculous to the sublime, her astonishing but often controversial magazine covers have not only broken the rules but also set the bar high for fashion, art and commerce over the past 25 years. From the legendary Black Issue featuring all black models to Steve Meisel’s Plastic Surgery issue, Sozzani remains deeply committed to exploring subject matter considered off limits to most in order to shake up the status quo and occasionally redefine the concept of beauty.

    With interviews from Karl Lagerfeld, Bruce Weber, Baz Luhrmann, Courtney Love and many others, Carrozzini gives us a behind the scenes glimpse into his mother’s creative process as well as peek into her vulnerabilities both past and present.
