‘An Oversimplification of her Beauty’ by Terence Nance

An Oversimplification of Her Beauty‘ By Terence Nance

An autobiographical debut feature which documents the frustrations of creator Terence Nance’s ambiguous relationship. Live action is interspersed with a variety of animated sequences from a team of over fifteen animators including Nance (also the writer, director, producer and central protagonist).

The film received enough attention at Sundance 2012 to get Jay-Z on board as an executive producer and Janelle Monae contributing to the soundtrack. It received a Gotham award in 2012 for ‘Best Film not Playing at a Theater Near You’, which thankfully no longer applies as it is set for U.S. release in April 2013.

Enjoy the overwhelmingly enticing trailer. We’re hoping it makes it over to the UK!
