Neil Barsky's Film KOCH to Open in NYC and Long Island, 2/8 & 15 High Res Photos


Former Mayor Ed Koch was the quintessential New Yorker. Always ferocious, charismatic, and hilariously blunt, the recently deceased (he died on February 1, 2013 the day the film opened in NYC) Koch ruled New York from 1978 to 1989-a down-and-dirty decade of grit, graffiti, near-bankruptcy and rampant crime. Directed by Neil Barsky, the film KOCH is produced by Jenny Carchman and Zeitgeist Films. It will open wider in New York and Long Island, beginning Feb. 8, 2013.
