Event Details

  • The latest film from legendary documentarian Frederick Wiseman (Titicut Follies; National Gallery) arrives at the crux of a major crossroads for our nation. City government touches almost every aspect of our lives. Most of us are unaware of or take for granted these necessary services such as police, fire, sanitation, veterans affairs, elder support, parks, licensing of various professional activities, record keeping of birth, marriage, and death as wells as hundreds of other activities that support Boston residents and visitors. Wiseman’s City Hall shows the efforts by the Boston city government to provide these services. The film also illustrates 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 homeless. City Hall, without editorializing or casting broadsides, shows a city government successfully offering a wide variety of services to a diverse population.
