Cooked: Survival by Zip Code

Cooked: Survival by Zip Code

Available on iTunes, Prime Video
In 1995 Chicago was hit by a record-breaking heat wave, so hot that the lives of 739 residents were lost in a single week; mostly poor, African-American, and elderly residents. This searing, offbeat documentary connects the dots to more recent natural disasters, provocatively exploring the ways in which class, race and zip code predetermine our chances of survival during environmental crises.
