Join the San Francisco Public Library as we pay tribute to Public Defender Jeff Adachi. 

Presumed guiltyPresumed Guilty: Tales of the Public Defenders chronicles a year of trench warfare in jails, holding cells, courtrooms, law offices and police stations, revealing the criminal justice system as never seen before.  Presumed Guilty is a powerful look at the triumphs, defeats and moral dilemmas of a group of lawyers in the San Francisco public defender’s office. Directed by Pamela Yates, 2002, Skylight (1 hour, 56 minutes)

Also, view Adachi’s recent feature films Defender and America Needs a Racial Facial on Wednesday, March 13. And in May, CAAMFest will showcase more of Adachi’s films.

Thank you to Skylight and the San Francisco Public Defenders’ Office for help with these screenings.

This is a Films & Videos program from SFPL. From feature films to youth-made videos, we’ve got something great to watch.
