Next up for our film series @ the Hollywood Theatre is Hot Coffee, which examines the case of Liebeck v. McDonald’s Restaurants, known as the “hot coffee lawsuit,” in which a woman sued the fast-food giant after she spilled her coffee and burned herself. Looking past the scathing negative publicity of the trial, the film examines the insidious reasons why McDonald’s invested heaps of money to sway public opinion against the plaintiff.
Director Susan Saladoff will host a workshop @ NW Doc to discuss the making of Hot Coffee, her first film, and share how she successfully screened at dozens of festivals and aired on HBO.
Workshop @ NW Doc: April 14th from 11am-1pm.
Free for NW Doc & Hollywood members. $20 for non-members.
