City Hall

Director: Frederick Wiseman

USA 2020 274min

with Japanese subtitles

Wiseman continues his observation of all the corners of American society. This time, he points his camera at the manifold work of Boston City Hall, from its support for homeless people to recognizing same-sex marriages, reflecting on not just the ideals of democracy but also how it works in practice. A challenge to the idea of a fragmenting American society.
