Additional Information

'Cooked' tells the story of the most traumatic heat wave in U.S. history, in which 739 Chicago citizens died in a single week of July 1995--most of them poor, elderly, and African American. The film explores the intersection of poverty, global warming, and the politics of crisis.

Judith Helfand’s other films include the Sundance award-winning, Emmy nominated 'Blue Vinyl,' and its Peabody Award-winning prequel 'A Healthy Baby Girl' (a five-year video diary about her experience with cancer).

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Helfand.

All Hammer public programs are free. Hammer members receive priority seating, subject to availability. Reservations not accepted, RSVPs not required.

Parking is available under the museum for $3 after 6:00pm.
