Fred Wiseman’s painstaking, landmark documentaries capture the heart and soul of America. City Hall is no exception. His portrait of Boston’s city government is a love letter to civic responsibility and democratic values. Wiseman immerses us in the life of the city through the changing seasons and in locations that stretch from an animal shelter to a Red Sox victory parade and a police station briefing room. Mayor Marty Walsh is a key figure throughout - a wily, compassionate politician who wants to make a difference for all the diverse communities that he serves.

‘I devoured the entire thing in one single sitting without ever once glancing at my watch or shifting in my seat. Even in a filmography with more than its fair share of impressive achievements, it deserves consideration as one of Wiseman’s greatest.’ - RogerEbert.com_
