An Oversimplification Of Her Beauty

Screening at 7pm at The Roxie

In connection to his exhibition, Evidence of Things Not Seen at KADIST, photo-conceptual artist, Hank Willis Thomas selected these films as a homage to innovative and influential creators in the medium of film whose work supports social justice as well as explores contemporary notions of identity, race, history and a national legacy of resistance. 

An Oversimplification Of Her Beauty
A discussion with filmmaker Terence Nance and Hank Willis Thomas will follow the screening.

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.

Directed by Terence Nance. 84 min. USA. 2013. DCP.
