Introducing Terence Nance
Trailer: An Oversimplification Of Her Beauty
Several years ago Terence found himself caught up in an exciting but somewhat complicated grey area between a friendship and a relationship.
As an artist his way of dealing with this was to make an experimental film about it, starring himself and the girl in question. An Oversimplification of Her Beauty moves effortlessly between reconstructed scenes and imagined ones, as well as between live action and stylised animation. Charming and distinct, the film has played at 40-plus festivals and counts Jay-Z among its executive producers. It has marked the debut director as a filmmaker to watch- a designation reinforced recently when his upcoming second feature, The Lobbyists, won The Creative Promise Narrative Award at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Nance’s self-deprecating approach is rather refreshing considering the acclaim he has achieved at such a young age. He believes that ‘the film is evidence of a completely fatal foreign policy on my part in dealing with women that I am attracted to’. Its hard not to admire the guy. The film opened on limited release on the 26th April, click here if you want to know more.
