Vinyl is ubiquitous. It’s found in children’s toys and in intravenous bags that sustain the elderly. With dark humor and activist urgency, filmmakers Judith Helfand (A HEALTHY BABY GIRL) and Daniel Gold explore the long-term implications of the deadly PVC toxins involved in the manufacture of vinyl. Skillfully edited archive footage, old commercials, animation by Emily Hubley and interviews with industry spokespeople effectively strengthen this award-winning film’s clarion call. Winner of the Cinematography Award at the Sundance Film Festival.
