Executive producers Jay-Z, Dream Hampton, and Wyatt Cenac present Terence Nance's explosively creative debut feature, An Oversimplification of Her Beauty. With arresting insight, vulnerability, and a delightful sense of humor, the film documents the relationship between Terence (Terence Nance) and a lovely young woman (Namik Minter) as it teeters on the divide between platonic and romantic. Watch as Terence discovers more about Najja in our exclusive clip. An Oversimplification of Her Beauty opens in New York today, followed by a wider roll out in May.
Utilizing a tapestry of live action and multiple styles of animation, the film blurs the line between narrative, documentary, and experimental film as it explores the fantasies, emotions, and memories that race through Terence's mind as he examines and re-examines a singular moment in time.
