@terencenance's must-see debut finally opens.

An Oversimplification Of Her Beauty

It is so rare that we see representations of a man’s emotional life.  And it’s even more rare to explore that of a man of color.  But that’s exactly what director Terence Nance has done with his award-winning film An Oversimplification Of Her Beauty, which opens tomorrow, April 26 in NYC with additional dates around the country to follow.  Here’s the brief synopsis of a film that mixes live action and animation to stunning effect:

With arresting insight, vulnerability, and a delightful sense of humor, Terence Nance’s explosively creative debut feature, An Oversimplification Of Her Beauty, documents the relationship between Terence and a lovely young woman (Namik Minter) as it teeters on the divide between platonic and romantic. Utilizing a tapestry of live action and various styles of animation, Terence explores the fantasies, emotions, and memories that race through his mind during a singular moment in time.

Here’s the trailer:
