Product Description

Set in the streets of South Boston, THE GREENING OF SOUTHIE is a feature documentary about Boston's first residential green building, The Macallen Building, from the perspective of the men and women who bring it to life.

With its wheatboard cabinetry and recycled steel, bamboo floors and living roof, The Macallen Building is a revolutionary model of environmentally friendly design. But building green has its challenges, and the jobsite has its skeptics. And when things on the building star to go wrong, the young development team has to keep the project from unraveling.

Format: DVD
This is a great documentary! I heard about the film because I was a fan of King Corn, which is made by the same filmmakers. (Might I also recommend that movie, great flick!) I have seen it a few times now, and every time I learn something new about green construction. Not only is the film educational, but it is really entertaining!

My favorite thing about this documentary is the construction workers, who are funny and smahrt and witty. You can see that the workers that the film focuses on have an epiphany as they work on the green site. They come to really understand how important green construction is.

I would definitely reccommend this film to anyone and everyone. I know people who are using it in classrooms and I know people who just purchased it for their own collection.

Informative video on the whole USGB / LEED process. Funny and gritty documentary. Good to show to mature students on the green building process.
