EarthxFilm Presents: COOKED – SURVIVAL BY ZIP CODE

October 16, 2020 , 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm CDT

COOKED: SURVIVAL BY ZIP CODE Movie Mondays EarthxFilm Earthx Film
COOKED director Judith Helfand

COOKED director Judith Helfand

COOKED: Survival by Zip Code is Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Judith Helfand’s searing investigation into the politics of “disaster” – by way of the deadly 1995 Chicago heat wave, in which 739 residents perished (mostly Black and living in the city’s poorest neighborhoods). Asking questions that invite people to redefine the term “disaster” and reframe the concept of “resilience,” Helfand forges inextricable connections between the cataclysmic natural disasters we’re willing to see and prepare for and the slow-motion disasters we’re not – that is, until an extreme weather event hits and they are made exponentially more deadly and visible.

Whether it’s the heat wave in Chicago, a hurricane, forest fires, or now a novel virus, these deadly disasters reveal the ways in which class, race, and zip code predetermine who lives and dies every day. In COOKED Helfand challenges herself and ultimately all of us to respond to the man-made disasters taking place in towns and cities across the country before the next unprecedented “natural” disaster hits.
