Last night was the Los Angeles premiere of Matt Tyrnauer's CITIZEN JANE: BATTLE FOR THE CITY.  It was wonderful to see it on the big screen at one of my favorite theaters in Los Angeles--Landmark Theaters NUART. I was pleased to co-edit and co-produce the film with Corey Reeser and Daniel Morfesis for Altimeter Films.

Jane Jacobs was a journalist/activist in New York City in the late 50s and early 60s who fought against the massively destructive wave of urban renewal that was destroying the very communities it was supposed to be saving. The film is rolling out to theaters across the country. For a listing of national release dates, cities, and tickets, see GOWATCHIT.

Jean Nouvel Reflections

Architecture has always been a big interest of mine, so it was a real treat to edit Matt Tyrnauer's short film on the French architect, Jean Nouvel. Seven of his buildings are highlighted in various stages of completion as the film explores the Pritzker Prize winning architect's principles of design and process.

Here is a link to an interview with director, Matt Tyrnauer in Architectural Digest about the film.
