Cooked
  • Tue, Sep 24 7:00 PM
  • $12.00 / $15.00

Directed by Judith Helfand (US, 2019, 76 min)

In her signature serious-yet-quirky connect-the-dots style, Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Judith Helfand takes audiences from the deadly 1995 Chicago heat disaster deep into one of our nation’s biggest growth industries - Disaster Preparedness. Along the way she forges inextricable links between extreme weather, extreme disparity and the politics of 'disaster'; daring to ask: what if a zip code was just a routing number, and not a life-or-death sentence?

Screening followed by Q+A.
