    Exclusive Area Premiere June 14–16!

    You’ve just arrived home after a bad day. You’re broke and lonely, even though you live in the biggest and busiest city in America. You do, however, have one cause for mild optimism: you seem to have captured the attention of an intriguing young lady. You’ve rushed home to clean your apartment before she comes over. In your haste, you see that you’ve missed a call. There’s a voice mail; she tells you that she won’t be seeing you tonight. 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 (Minter) as it teeters on the divide between platonic and romantic. Utilizing a tapestry of live action and various styles of animation, Nance explores the fantasies, emotions, and memories that race through his mind during a singular moment in time.
    (2012) dir Terence Nance w/Nance, Namik Minter [93 min] Digital Presentation

    “A dense, organic, dazzling and funny tapestry … Nance turns his thought into a performance of vulnerability that’s all too relatable in its indulgences. It has heart without becoming cloying … A definitive mixtape that memorializes, and not so sneakily celebrates, the sweet angst of a certain kind of romantic limbo.” – The New York Times
