Event Originally produced by Zeitgeist Films in 2012.
Summary Former Mayor Ed Koch was the quintessential New Yorker. Ferocious, charismatic, and hilariously blunt, Koch, ruled New York from 1978 to 1989, a down-and-dirty decade of grit, graffiti, near-bankruptcy and rampant crime. KOCH is 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. Official Selection at the **Hamptons International Film Festival** and at the **Palm Springs Film Festival.** "*Skillfully directed and assembled...a very good movie—vivid, touching, and fair.*" - Hendrik Hertzberg, ***The New Yorker***
