Abstract:

When her parents decide to have vinyl siding put on their Long Island house, filmmaker Judith Helfand and co-director Daniel B. Gold decide to examine the impact and nature of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a seemingly innocuous material. They travel to Lake Charles, Louisiana, Venice, Italy, and Chesterfield, England to interview current and former vinyl workers, fabricators, citizen activists, litigators, a vinyl manufacturing spokesperson, and industry executives. The film is a uniquely personal exploration of the relationship between America's consumers and the vinyl manufacturing industry.
