Greening of Southie -Friday March 5 - Park Slope

From: Judy O.
Sent on: Wednesday, March 3, 2010 6:23 PM
Friday, March 5, 8:00 p.m. 
PARK SLOPE. Park Slope United Methodist Church, corner of 6th Ave.and 8th St.

Part of the Environmental Action Film Series at Park Slope United Methodist Church.

Curt Ellis and Ian Cheney's film covers the construction of one of the country's "greenest" buildings, the Macallan, a condominium in working class South Boston. Using bamboo floors from China, Bolivian lumber, and local concrete, the structure becomes Boston's first to be LEED Gold-certified, but as interviews with environmentalists and union workers attests, the job is a more complex and difficult job than anyone thought. Yet among the I-beams and brickwork emerges a small cadre of unlikely environmentalists who come to connect their work with the future of their children. The Bostonist called The Greening of Southie "a balanced but incisive look at a complex issue that affects us all." 

Post screening discussion with Ellen Honigstock, Registered Architect, LEED AP, Sustainable Strategies for Existing Buildings.

Potluck dinner at 7PM. Film Screening at 8PM. Admission Free.
