A question-and-answer session will follow. "The Greening of Southie" is the story of a revolutionary green building, and the union teams that bring it to life. The story is set on the rugged streets of south Boston and the jobsite has its skeptics. "The Greening of Southie" is a story of bold ideas, new environmentalists and the future of the way we live.
