Blue Vinyl

Blue Vinyl is a 2002 documentary film directed by Daniel B. Gold and Judith Helfand. With a lighthearted tone, the film follows one woman's quest for an environmentally-sound cladding for her parents' house in Merrick, Long Island, New York. It also investigates the possible negative health effects of polyvinyl chloride production and use, focusing on the communities of Lake Charles and Mossville, Louisiana, and Venice, Italy. Filming for Blue Vinyl began in 1994.

The film received scrutiny [1] when the DVD was released with portions missing from the original broadcast. Lori Sanzone, a woman diagnosed with ASL, a type of cancer associated with vinyl exposure, had her diagnosis changed to a different disease. Also, after an out-of-court settlement, an Italian court ended a lawsuit talked about in Blue Vinyl.
