Blue Vinyl
Judith Helfand and Daniel B. Gold 2002 98 minutes
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 sid! ed homes in suburban Long Island, to hushed cancer outbreaks in Louisiana and Venice, Italy, this vibrant exposé tracks vinyl's shocking history with willful irony and a healthy dose of humor.

Crude Impact

James Jandak Wood 2006 30 minutes
In 1956 M. King Hubbert predicted that US oil production would peak in the 1970's and then irreversibly diminish. Crude Impact takes us on a global journey to witness how his ignored prediction came true. From West Africa to the Amazon, from Washington to Shanghai, this compelling journey shows the global impact of our pursuit of oil and offers a vision for change.
