    On Wednesday, March 6th at 7:30 p.m. The Avon Theatre presents a Documentary Night screening of KOCH followed by a Q&A with director Neil Barsky.

    Ticket prices are as follows: Carte Blanche Members: FREE, Members: $6, Students & Seniors: $8, Nonmembers: $11. Call the Avon business office at 203-661-0321 or the box office at 203-967-3660, x2 for tickets.

    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.

    ABOUT NEIL BARSKY: KOCH is Neil Barsky’s first documentary film. Neil began his career as a newspaper reporter, and covered real estate and economic development for the New York Daily News and the Wall Street Journal. He subsequently became a Wall Street analyst and hedge fund manager. He is a graduate of Oberlin College and Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. He sits on the board of trustees of Oberlin College and the board of directors of Youth Communication, and is chair of the Columbia Journalism Review board of overseers.
