A new documentary Contested Streets explores ways cities around the world are breaking free from the chokehold of traffic, enhancing quality of life and environmental sustainability and allowing room for their economies to grow and flourish. The film was produced by PPS’s partners in the NYC Streets Renaissance Campaign, Mark Gorton, director of the Lime Group, and Paul Steely White, Executive Director of Transportation Alternatives. Fred Kent, PPS’s President, appears as one of the experts interviewed in the film.
The movie will premier at the IFC Film Center in New York City on June 27th, and will also be available through a grassroots home-screening campaign. For more information on the film, attending the premier or hosting a screening, please visit www.transalt.org.
