Synopsis

Former Mayor Ed Koch was the quintessential New Yorker. Koch, who died in February at the age of 88, ruled New York from 1978 to 1989—a down-and-dirty decade of grit, graffiti, near-bankruptcy and rampant crime. First-time filmmaker Neil Barsky has crafted an intimate and revealing portrait of this private man, his legacy as a political titan, and the town he helped transform. The tumult of his three terms included a 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.
