When Harrison Ford demonstrated with casual nonchalance that the gun was mightier than the sword in "Raiders of the Lost Ark," 11-year-old Theodore Witcher was inspired to pick up a camera. Fifteen years later, the rookie writer-director is trying to show that romance can be mightier than the gun. Witcher wrote and directed "love jones," which stars Larenz Tate and Nia Long in the first of what producers hope is a series of revisionist films about the modern young African American experience.

First-time filmmaker Malcolm D. Lee, 29, wants to make mainstream Hollywood movies with characters "who just happen to be black." The problem is, he wants to do so in a marketplace where few, if any movies with all-black casts have ever crossed over to broader audiences, including those directed by his older, high-profile first cousin Spike Lee.
