Description

When director Judith Helfand's parents install vinyl siding on their house, she sets out with filmmaking partner Daniel B. Gold to find out the truth about the toxic manufacture and corporate corruption behind a seemingly innocuous plastic product.  From vinyl sided homes in suburban Long Island, to hushed cancer outbreaks in Louisiana and Venice, Italy, this vibrant expose tracks vinyl's shocking history with willful irony and a healthy dose of humor.

 

Also included is a short film by James Jandak Wood called "Crude Impact," which follows the global impact of U.S. oil production.
