Greening of Southie (72 min.) 2008
By Ian Cheney & Curt Ellis
This film shows the role of skilled union labor in building an environmental friendly building in South Boston. Workers bring the building into being with the latest technologies and environmental friendly products. Contained in this construction process is making the most points for environmental standards required to get a top rating. For the workers and developers, the time and cost including ripping out new products that haven’t worked is a letdown. At the same time union building trades workers lament that with their income they themselves can’t afford to live in their own Boston neighborhood “Southie.” http://www.greeningofsouthie.com
