Film Information

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. City Hall, by Frederick Wiseman, shows the efforts by 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 shows a city government successfully offering a wide variety of services to a diverse population.

Wednesdays With Wiseman

On the three Wednesdays leading up to City Hall, the new film from Iconic documentary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman, we’ll drop one of his classics, complemented by exclusive conversations with the likes of Errol Morris (The Fog of War) and Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi (Free Solo).
