Jamal Joseph, sitting back in the unaccustomed thin air of the Sundance Institute in Utah, sounds at times like just another big-city guy with a movie in his pocket. Yes, there is a certain script he's working on. One he will also direct, of course. And there is Greenlight Productions, the rightfully titled company he formed to make that movie and whatever else he develops, like a movie about Bob Marley. The words are all so familiar.

After Film Clips reported a few weeks ago that five Black Panther feature-film projects were in the works, a sixth one came to our attention. Jamal Joseph, a former Panther party leader, is trying to raise money for his independent project, "Liberated Territory--A Rite of Passage." He wrote the screenplay and plans to direct the movie, a semi-autobiographical account of several teen-agers who join the Panthers.

Earlier this year, ABC and Fox sprinted to the prime-time arena with dual biographies of Muhammad Ali. ABC won the first round, airing "King of the World" in January. Seven months later, Fox now reaches for the shelf and pulls down "Ali: An American Hero," a solid, respectable biopic focusing on the religious convictions of the living legend.

The Black Panther Party, whose presence has been felt far longer than the organization's actual active life, tends to stir up deep, almost irrational passions in America's far political wings. While both sides have railed for and against the Panthers, a reasoned, objective history of the group's rise and fall has yet to be written. And we're no closer to the unvarnished truth with Peter Miller's and John Valadez's "Passin' It On," on PBS' "P.O.V." series tonight.

The American Cinematheque's Alternative Screen independent film showcase presents Lance Laspina's "Frazetta: Painting With Fire," a splendid example of a documentary that makes full use of the rich potentials of the form. It is a comprehensive survey of the life and work of Frank Frazetta, the fantasy illustrator and painter perhaps most widely known for his covers for the "Conan the Barbarian" novels that inspired the look of the 1982 Arnold Schwarzenegger movie.

Recent films such as "Carlos," "The Baader Meinhof Complex" and "Che" have looked at the blowback and aftermath of the revolutionary adventures of the 1960s and '70s across Europe and South America. With "Night Catches Us" writer-director Tanya Hamilton brings some of those same passions and upheavals to domestic shores with a look at the personal undercurrents that drive the political actions in one neighborhood in Philadelphia in 1976. Hamilton's film, opening in Los Angeles on Dec. 10 and available on video-on-demand, is a fictional drama but has some rough basis in historical truth.
