Emory Cinematheque presents for Spring 2020 African-Americans in American Film Love Jones (dir. Theodore Witcher, 1997; 104 min.) Theodore Witcher’s film explores the complicated relationship between slam poet Darius (Larenz Tate) and photographer Nina (Nia Long) as they pursue artistic careers in the Windy City. Nestled among a bevy of “hood films,” this film gem showcases Chicago’s Black middle class and black cultural practices that underscore Darius and Nina’s angst ridden definition and pursuit of love. Buoyed by strong performances by Isaiah Washington and Lisa Nicole Carlson and one of the decade’s seminal soundtracks, the cult classic reminds audiences of what it feels like to fall in love and what it takes to stay there.
