SYNOPSIS

Frederick Wiseman investit la municipalité de Boston, où le maire démocrate Marty Walsh et ses équipes travaillent dans un esprit participatif et collaboratif avec les citoyens, à la mise en place d’une politique sociale, culturelle et égalitaire.

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 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.
