Please join Friends of Historic Preservation and the City of Iowa City for a screening of Blue Vinyl, a 2002 documentary film by Judith Helfand and Daniel Gold. In a lighthearted tone, the film follows one woman's quest to find nontoxic, environmentally sound siding for her parents Long Island home, while investigating the negative health effects of polyvinyl chloride production and the unrecyclable nature of vinyl.
