The university will sponsor a screening of the film “Cooked: Survival by Zip Code” on Thursday, Oct. 24, at 4:30 p.m. at the Oriental Theatre (2230 N. Farwell Ave.)
“Cooked” tells the story of the 1995 Chicago heat disaster and how extreme weather conditions disproportionately harmed people in lower-income zip codes. In the film, Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Judith Helfand explores the issues of economic disparity, climate change and racial segregation — as well as how these issues are connected and often have deathly implications.
The Milwaukee Film Festival runs Oct. 17 – 31. Learn more and see the full lineup of films online.
Tickets for the film are made possible through a sponsorship by the Office of the President and are available on a first come, first served basis. To request tickets, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: The Milwaukee Film Festival suggests that attendees arrive 30 minutes prior to showtime to guarantee a seat. All ticket holders must arrive no later than 15 minutes prior to the scheduled showtime to guarantee a seat. Beginning 15 minutes before the show, any empty seats will be sold to other patrons.
