Our film this month is a look at the environmental justice issues that exist as we experience the wrath of nature and other disasters.  Why the impact of such emergencies is disproportionately felt by some and not others is the central theme of this film.

Presenting

COOKED

Survival by Zip Code

Virtual Screening, Friday, October 15, 2021, 6:30 pm (PST)

Cooked: Survival By Zip Code is a documentary by filmmaker Judith Helfand which tells the story of the tragic 1995 Chicago Heat wave.  In Cooked the audience is given an in depth  view of the 1995 Chicago Heat wave in which 739 residents mostly elderly and Black died in the course of a week and connects it to the underlying man made disaster of systematic structural racism.

 Whether it’s a deadly heat wave in Chicago and North West United States, hurricanes in the South and East or massive wildfires in the West, these disasters reveal the ways in which class, race and Zip Code predetermine who lives and dies, who gets hurt the worst and which communities recover and rebuild and which simply do not.
