Docurama to Release Doc on Dangers of PVC

11 Mar, 2005 By: Jessica Wolf

Docurama March 29 is releasing Blue Vinyl, a documentary with a dark, comedic feel about the toxic effects of PVC and its prevalence in everyday American life, in everything from computers and medical equipment to toys and siding for homes.

The film won the Excellence in Cinematography award at this year's Sundance Film Festival. After the film's theatrical release, Peabody award-winning filmmaker Judith Helfand decided to keep the issue alive by founding a grassroots watchdog organization called Our House is Your House, which continues to investigate the dangers of PVC in the environment.
