New Green Building Documentary: The Greening of Southie

The Greening of Southie
is a new film from the makers of the excellent King Corn,
which deals with the building of a green building
The MacAllen Building ( ),
"Boston's first green residential building", slotted to be rated LEED Gold,
in South Boston. (Which makes it a cultural contrast with Garbage Warrior
( )

During the week of Earth Day (always April 22nd, every year), the filmmakers are encouraging the showing of this film at union halls.

The website has...
- a trailer &
- much background info
- flash construction, which makes it impossible to link to anything but the website itself (aargh!)
