Written and directed by Sacramento State alumnus Ryan Coogler, "Fruitvale Station" is Coogler's first feature-length film and is based on the events leading to the death of Oscar Grant, a 22 year old black man who was killed in 2009 by BART police officer Johannes Mehserle at the Fruitvale station of the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system in Oakland, California.

The film stars Michael B. Jordan as Oscar Grant. Forest Whitaker is one of the film's producers. Kevin Durand and Chad Michael Murray play the two BART police officers involved in Grant's death.
