The 1995 heat wave in Chicago, Hurricane Katrina, and other natural disasters all share something in common: they reveal ways in which class, race, and zip code predetermine who was living on the edge to start with, who gets hurt the worst, and who recovers and bounces back. Filmmaker Judith Helfand explores the points where natural disasters meet systemic structural racism and challenges audiences to have the tough conversations about invisible man-made public health disasters.
