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.
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.'
- Sunday, November 11 - 1:30PM (Filmmakers attending!)
- Wednesday, November 14- 2:45PM (Filmmakers attending!)
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.
- Sunday, November 11 - 4:00PM (Filmmakers and subjects in attendance!)
Watch the trailer:
