With arresting insight, vulnerability, and a delightful sense of humor, Terence Nance’s explosively creative debut feature documents the relationship between Brooklyn artist Nance and a lovely young woman 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. An Oversimplification of Her Beauty premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and was developed at the Sundance Institute Filmmaker’s Lab.
