A new film by Judith Helfand and Daniel B. Gold
Co-produced by Julia D. Parker
Official Selection Sundance 2002 Film Festival: ** Excellence in
With humor, chutzpah, and a piece of vinyl siding firmly in hand,
Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Judith Helfand and co-director and
award winning-cinematographer Daniel B. Gold travel to America's vinyl
manufacturing capital and beyond in search of the truth about vinyl,
America's most popular and second fastest selling plastic.
Helfand's parents' decision to "re-side" their house with

toxic odyssey with twists and turns that most ordinary homeowners
would never dare to take. The result is a humorous but sobering and

Join us for an incredible odyssey that follows the lifecycle of vinyl

plastic) could be costing communities, workers, children, our health
and the environment. It's a journey you can't afford to miss.
