Directed by Judith Helfand (US, 2019, 76 min)
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’; daring to ask: what if a zip code was just a routing number, and not a life-or-death sentence?
Screening followed by Q+A with director, Rabbi Mira Rivera, BCC Jewish Emergent Network Rabbinic Fellow (Romemu), Rabbi Isaiah J. Rothstein, MSW Rabbi-in-Residence (Hazon), and Stephan Roundtree, Jr., Environmental Policy and Advocacy Coordinator (WE ACT for Environmental Justice).Buy tickets/get more info now
