Blue Vinyl

Friday, October 30 - Sunday, November 1, 2009

A “green” cult classic way before these oh-so-green times, critics’ darling BLUE VINYL begins in front of co-director Judith Helfand’s parents’ house as she earnestly pleas with her father not to replace their wood clapboard with vinyl siding. And so begins a sobering exploration into the underside of the vinyl industry, from Long Island to Venice, Italy. Balancing horror with humor, the film takes viewers on a unique exploration into what it takes to be a truly educated consumer.
