Unrated; 73 minutes

Set on the rugged streets of South Boston, THE GREENING OF SOUTHIE is the story of a revolutionary green building, and the union teams who bring it to life.

From wheatboard cabinetry to recycled steel, the Macallen Building is something different -- a leader in the emerging field of environmentally friendly design. But building green has its challenges, and the job-site has its skeptics. When things on the building start to go wrong, the young development team has to keep the project from unraveling.
