SCREENING 2: COOKED, SURVIVAL BY ZIP CODE

IFC Center

Rebuild by Design and NYU’s Institute for Public Knowledge invite you to the world premiere of the film Cooked: Survival by Zip Code, featuring director Judith Helfand and author Eric Klinenberg, with two special screenings on Sunday, November 11, and Wednesday, November 14.

In July 1995, Chicago was hit by a record heat wave that claimed the lives of 739 residents, primarily among the elderly, African Americans and those living in poverty. Using this tragedy as a jumping-off point, but referencing other extreme weather catastrophes like Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, Cooked provocatively reframes the politics of disaster to encompass extreme inequity, arguing that economically disadvantaged communities should be preventatively treated as disasters taking place in slow motion. For more information and RSVP>>
