ABOUT THE FILM: Former Mayor Ed Koch was the quintessential New Yorker. Ferocious, charismatic, and hilariously blunt, the late Koch ruled New York from 1978 to
1989—a down-and-dirty decade of grit, graffiti, near-bankruptcy and rampant crime. First-time filmmaker (and former Wall Street Journal reporter) Neil Barsky has crafted an intimate and revealing portrait of this intensely private man, his legacy as a political titan, and the town he helped transform. The tumult of his three terms included a fiercely competitive 1977 election; an infamous 1980 transit strike; the burgeoning AIDS
epidemic; landmark housing renewal initiatives; and an irreparable municipal corruption scandal. Through candid interviews and rare archival footage, Koch thrillingly chronicles
the personal and political toll of running the world’s most wondrous city in a time of upheaval and reinvention. In English | 95 minutes.
