A documentary film about Guy Jarreau, who was shot and killed by Vallejo police in late 2010, will be shown 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14 at the Napa Valley College community room in the McCarthy Library.
Jarreau was a Napa Valley College student and active member of the Black Student Union and Umoja program. He was killed Dec. 11 in a controversial police shooting.
Police claim they shot him in self-defense after they responded to a 911 call about a man brandishing a gun.
Jarreau's friends, however, say that just before the incident, Jarreau was on the street filming an anti-crime video. He died on the way to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek.
The film was created by Josh Henry, one of Jarreau's close friends, according to a written statement released about the film.
After the film, there will be a panel discussion with Henry and Cephus Johnson, the uncle of Oscar Grant, who was killed by a BART police officer.
The panel will be moderated by Napa Valley College English professor Eileene Tajada.
