Death of Two Sons (USA, Guinea)

Directed by Micah Schaffer

2006, 64 min.

This moving documentary examines the death of Amadou Diallo, the 22-year-old Guinean immigrant who was senselessly shot to death by 41 bullets fired by New York City policemen, and the death of Jesse Thyne, an American Peace Corps volunteer who lived and worked with Diallo's family in Guinea. The film examines the religious, social and political implications of their deaths, raising painful and difficult questions about race and global disparities of justice.

Producer Alrick Brown will introduce and answer questions about the film.
