Director Susan Saladoff in attendance for a Q+A at the April 12th & 14th screenings. The NW Documentary Film Series, sponsored by The Documentary Channel, presents Hot Coffee , which examines the so-called "hot coffee lawsuit" (Liebeck v. McDonald’s Restaurants), 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, Saladoff 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 Documentary 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. Register here.
