Hollywood is currently seeing a great influx of young African-American filmmakers who collectively are altering the face of American filmmaking. African-American Screenwriters Now brings together recent interviews with both up-and-coming and established screenwriters, some of whom also work as directors and producers, and paints a vivid picture of the opportunities and obstacles that face today's black filmmakers in Hollywood. These writers discuss their influences, their goals, the birth of stories, the writing process, getting work, and getting films made, alongside their comments on racial barriers and the portrayal of blacks in film.
