      Environmental Film Festival: COOKED: SURVIVAL BY ZIP CODE

      This searing yet quirky film investigates the "natural" disasters we're willing to see and prepare for and the "unnatural" ones we're not. Adapted from Eric Klinenberg's groundbreaking book Heat Wave: A Social Autopsy of Disaster in Chicago, Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Judith Helfand uses her signature serious-yet-quirky connect-the-dots style to take 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 among extreme weather, extreme disparity, and politics, daring to ask: What if a ZIP code were just a routing number, and not a life-or-death sentence? Directed by Judith Helfand (United States, 2018, 78 min.)
