DGC@Home: City Hall

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 well 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 homelessness. CITY HALL shows a city government successfully offering a wide variety of services to a diverse population

Critic Quotes:

“With “City Hall,” his 45th feature, he has composed another epic from a series of intricate, carefully arranged miniatures, a four-and-a-half-hour sprawl of a movie that will leave you admiring its agility and concision.” – Los Angeles Times

“I could have watched hours more of people simply talking to one another in auditoriums and across conference-room tables.” – New York Times

“Even in a filmography with more than its fair share of impressive achievements, it deserves consideration as one of Wiseman’s greatest.” – RogerEbert.com

“By the time “City Hall” arrives at its breathtaking final shots, Wiseman has crafted such an advanced case for understanding every aspect of local governance that it leads to the impression that America would be a better place if everyone experienced it.” – Indiewire

“The result is both sober and inspiring: an urban progress report taking into account a plethora of government services, scrutinized by Wiseman’s patient but unblinking eye.” – Variety
