Blue Vinyl Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

When director Judith Helfand (A Healthy Baby Girl) heard her parents were affixing blue vinyl siding to their house, she decided to find out how this product was created and disposed of. She and co-director Daniel B. Gold travel the world to point out how vinyl has caused numerous health problems. Included in their travels is a visit to Venice where businessmen who headed a vinyl company are on trial for manslaughter, and interviews with former employees of vinyl-producing factories who now suffer from cancer. Blue Vinyl was screened at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival, and aired as part of HBO's America Undercover series. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
