City government touches many aspects of our lives, providing hundreds of essential services. City Hall shows the efforts by the city of Boston to provide these resources, as Mayor Walsh and his administration address their policy priorities, including racial justice, housing, and climate change.

Our take

One of the greatest documentary filmmakers of all time, Frederick Wiseman has shaped the form with his astute observations of American institutions. His latest film, City Hall, is a wide-ranging and engrossing opus that looks at the beauty and frustrations of local governance and community.
