City Hall (City Hall)

Edition 2021
275' - 2020 - Dialogue: English
Director: Frederick Wiseman
City government touches almost every aspect of our lives. Most of us are unaware of or take for granted services such as police, fire, sanitation, veterans affairs, elder support, parks, licensing of various professional activities, record keeping of birth, marriage and death as well as hundreds of other activities that support the residents and visitors of Boston. City Hall shows the efforts by the city government to provide these essential services.

City Hall shows the efforts by the city government to provide these essential services. The film also portraits the variety of ways the city administration enters into civil discourse with the citizens of Boston. Mayor Walsh and his administration are presented addressing a number of their policy priorities which include racial justice, affordable housing, climate action, and homelessness.
