ABOUT THE FILM
In her signature serious-yet-quirky connect-the-dots style, Peabody award-winning filmmaker Judith Helfand takes audiences from the deadly 1995 Chicago heat disaster deep into one of our nation’s biggest growth industries – Disaster Preparedness. Along the ways she forges inextricable links between extreme weather, extreme disparity and the politics of ‘disaster’, daring to ask: what is zip code was just a routing number, and not a life-or-death sentence?

In July 1995, a scorching three-day stretch caught the city unprepared, leaving 739 dead. Most victims were Black, elderly and poor living in the city’s poorest neighborhoods: Englewood, Fuller Park, and Roseland, to name a few. For reasons ranging from illness and immobility to poverty and fear, none were prepared for a weather event of such magnitude. COOKED: Survival By Zip Code investigates how one of Chicago’s worst disasters unfolded. On the 25th annversary of the 1995 Chicago heat wave, PBS will air an encore broadcast of COOKED as a look back at what happened and why.
