This film dissects the 1995 heatwave in Chicago that killed 700 people.  One reason the documentary is valuable is the fact that heatwaves are the number one killer among climate-related disasters in the United States.  In this Chicago heatwave most of the deaths were on the South Side, emphasizing the connection between poverty, adaptation, extreme weather events, and death rates.  In other words, this powerful film focuses on environmental justice.

COOKED was the recipient of at least 9 film festival awards, including DOC NYC 2018, EarthXFilm, and Woods Hole Festival.
