Cooked, Lady Parts Justice in the New World Order to world premiere at DOC NYC

We are thrilled to share that Kartemquin's two newest projects, Cooked: Survival by Zip Code and Lady Parts Justice in the New World Order, will world premiere at 2018 DOC NYC – America's largest documentary film festival.

About Cooked
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 way she forges inextricable links between extreme weather, extreme disparity and the politics of 'disaster.'


About Lady Parts Justice in the New World Order
In a dangerously polarized political climate, Lady Parts Justice, led by The Daily Show’s co-creator Lizz Winstead, barnstorms the country with a boots-on-the-ground strategy to support abortion providers and reproductive rights, using comedy as the ultimate weapon to mobilize voters towards the 2018 elections.


Watch the trailer:

Also screening at the festival are Kartemquin films '63 Boycott, and Minding the Gap, both selections for 2018 DOC NYC's Short Lists for the year's outstanding feature and short documentaries.
