Tonight @ SPACE

In a couple of hours, The Greening of Southie will screen at SPACE Gallery. The documentary, about tough South Boston construction workers and the green apartment complex they're tasked with building, is the second outing from Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, the stars and producers of King Corn, which we wrote about this spring.

Here's what my esteemed colleague, Chris Gray, said about Southie in September:

The second release by King Corn filmmakers Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis has the same natural charm and levelheaded temperament as its predecessor. Following the construction of the Macallen Building in South Boston from the ground up, the film explains how a building achieves LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, and transforms a stubborn working-class neighborhood. The filmmakers could stand to be more probing interviewers (they mention the shortcomings of the LEED program, but don’t get anyone to ’fess up to them), but their technical skills — cinematography, score, editing — have improved sharply.
Tickets are $7.
