Join SUMASA for a screening of the award-winning documentary Blue Vinyl: A Toxic Comedy Look at Vinyl, The World’s Second Largest Selling Plastic. With humor, hope and a piece of vinyl siding firmly in hand, Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Judith Helfand and co-director Daniel B. Gold travel from Helfand’s hometown to America’s vinyl manufacturing capital and beyond in search of answers about the nature of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Her parents’ decision to “re-side” their house with this seemingly benign cure-all for many suburban homes turns into a toxic odyssey with twists and turns that most ordinary homeowners would never dare to take. The result is a humorous but sobering and uniquely personal exploration of the relationship between consumers and industry in the feature-length documentary BLUE VINYL.
Mike Schade, the Markets Campaign Coordinator with the Center for Health, Environment & Justice will be in attendance to introduce the film and answer questions. Please be prompt in your arrival!
