Jane Jacobs and the Future of Cities

Jane Jacobs and the Future of Cities

MF is continuing work on a feature documentary on urbanization in China and around the world with particular reference to the work of famed urbanist Jane Jacobs. 

The director is Matt Tyrnauer, who directed the feature documentary “Valentino: The Last Emperor”. This film is also being produced with Robert Hammond, co-founder of the High Line in NYC, and is funded by the Rockefeller and Ford Foundations with aim for theatrical release and worldwide distribution.

MF has been traveling to China's fastest-changing cities as we scout for amazing stories, compelling characters, and sweeping cityscapes for this film. We can't wait to see it come together.
