Hizzoner Edward I. Koch
Former Mayor Ed Koch was the quintessential New Yorker. Ferocious, charismatic, and hilariously blunt, Koch, who died in February, 2013 at the age of 88, took office in ’87 and ran the show until ’89—a down-and-dirty decade of grit, graffiti, near-bankruptcy and rampant crime. 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.
Directed by first-time filmmaker (and former Wall Street Journal reporter) Neil Barsky, Koch employs candid interviews and archival footage to craft a portrait of the notoriously private Koch, his legacy as a political titan and the town he helped transform, for better or worse.
Koch received a very small release to 16 screens in February, »
