Oak Creek — A documentary film about the Oak Creek Sikh Temple shooting, "Waking in Oak Creek," will be screened from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday at the Oak Creek Community Center, 8580 S. Howell Ave.
PBS's production company, "Not In Our Town" started filming "Waking in Oak Creek" after the candlelight vigil 18 months ago. Filmmakers sought to capture the city's reaction to tragedy and how it has been strengthened because of it, said Leslie Flynn, geographic informational systems coordinator at City Hall.
Flynn said the film is suitable for children but may contain emotional content.
A panel discussion with Mayor Steve Scaffidi, Police Chief John Edwards and Amardeep Kaleka will follow the screening. Kaleka is son of Satwant Kaleka, temple president, who was among those killed by gunman Wade Michael Page in 2012.

The event is free and open to the public with a printed or e-ticket from Eventbrite.com. There is a 350 person limit. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
