Love Jones

4 March, 2024 – 5.45 p.m.

From the golden age of 1990s African American cinema comes Love Jones, a classically cool Black love story that made room for more diverse depictions of Black love on screen.

Boy (a poet) meets girl (a photographer) at an open mic night in a ‘90s Chicago bar. Sexy, smooth and seductive, Nina (Nia Long) and Darius (Larenz Tate) lead the ensemble cast, but the story reverberates around them and their intoxicating romance. A love story about finding the one and how being reluctant to commit can be more painful than jumping right in. Writer-director Theodore Witcher’s feature debut features a stunning soundtrack, authentic performances and perfectly placed dialogue. They don’t make them like this anymore!

The film will be accompanied by a screening of short film, Essex Girls.
