What happens when you’re asked to build the city of tomorrow… today? Set on the rugged streets of South Boston, The Greening of Southie is the story of a revolutionary Green Building, and the men and women who bring it to life. From wheatboard cabinetry to recycled steel, bamboo flooring to dual-flush toilets, The Macallen Building is something different––a leader in the emerging field of environmentally friendly design. But Boston’s steel-toed construction workers aren’t sure they like it. And when things on the building start to go wrong, the young development team has to keep the project from unraveling. Funny and poignant, The Greening of Southie is a story of bold ideas, unlikely environmentalists, and the future of the way we live. Created by the co-producers and stars of King Corn, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, The Greening of Southie features cinematography by Taylor Gentry, innovative time-lapse animation, and music by the Brooklyn-based duo Force Theory.

    This was my first meetup, so I wasn't aware that I wouldn't know who else was there from the meetup. I didn't know who to approach about it. The movie was wonderful, but I decided to leave afterwards. I want to try this again, but I feel like I need a friend to come with me.

    I enjoyed the film but couldn't find the group. I asked about 6 different individuals/groups before giving up. Perhaps the coordinators could hold something (i.e., sign, flag, sparkler, etc) to identify themselves for the newbies.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
