An Oversimplification of Her Beauty USA, 2013, 84 minutes Director: Terence Nance
With arresting insight, vulnerability, and a delightful sense of humor, the film documents the relationship between Terence (Nance) and a lovely young woman (Namik Minter) as it teeters on the divide between platonic and romantic. Utilizing a tapestry of live action and multiple styles of animation, the film blurs the line between narrative, documentary, and experimental film to explore the fantasies, emotions, and memories that race through Terence's mind as he examines and re-examines a singular moment in time.
