Citizen Jane is a timely tale of what can happen when engaged citizens fight the power for the sake of a better world. Arguably no one did more to shape our understanding of the modern American city than Jane Jacobs, the visionary activist and writer who fought to preserve urban communities in the face of destructive development projects. Director Matt Tyranuer (Valentino: The Last Emperor) vividly brings to life Jacobs’ 1960s showdown with ruthless construction kingpin Robert Moses over his plan to raze lower Manhattan to make way for a highway, a dramatic struggle over the very soul of the neighborhood.

Airing on SHOWTIME
On April 29, 1992, Los Angeles exploded when four police officers were acquitted in the beating of Rodney King. But the city had been smoldering for years. This provocative documentary looks at how decades of racial tensions, injustice and a troubled relationship between the LAPD and the African-American community led to the uprising. Local residents, artists and community organizers share firsthand accounts of police brutality, the ‘65 Watts riots, the rise of LA street gangs and the ‘92 incident.

TONY CONRAD: COMPLETELY IN THE PRESENT
Thursday, March 16, 2017
Co-presented by The Theatre at Ace Hotel
933 S. Broadway
Los Angeles, CA 90015
The Broad is pleased to present the West Coast premiere of Tyler Hubby’s documentary film, Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present. The film examines the pioneering life and work of artist, musician, and educator, Tony Conrad, and this special iteration of The Un-Private Collection series highlights both his extraordinary career and his influence on the work of Broad collection artists including Mike Kelley, Robert Longo, and Tony Oursler. Since the early 1960s, Conrad’s vast, inter-disciplinary repertoire has created and influenced major film and compositional movements. He performed in and recorded the soundtrack to Jack Smith’s legendary Flaming Creatures; he defied conventions of cinema with The Flicker, an experimental structuralist film composed of a precise pattern of alternating black and white frames; he developed and practiced Just Intonation and Minimalism with Stockhausen and La Monte Young; and he even played a part in the formation of The Velvet Underground. (Still from Tony Conrad: Completely in the Present, 2016, dir. Tyler Hubby. DCP, color, stereo surround, 96 min.)
A post-screening conversation with Tyler Hubby and Tony Oursler (whose work is on view in the collection installation, Creature, at The Broad through March 19) will be moderated by Henry Rollins. Iconic artist and musician, Kim Gordon, who collaborated with Tony Conrad, will perform to close out the night.
