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).
