Variance Films opens Terence Nance's enthralling An Oversimplification Of Her Beauty, today, Friday, April 26, 2013.If it's not already clear by now, it's a film that I really dig for a number of reasons, and that I strongly encourage you to see - assuming it's playing at a theater near you this weekend (or coming to a theater near you eventually).It opens in New York City today, at the Cinema Village (tickets). Showtimes - 1:05p 2:45p 4:25p 6:05p 7:50p 9:30p.I should note that, after tomorrow's (Saturday's) 7:50pm screening, at Cinema Village, I'll be moderating a Q&A with Terence Nance. So hopefully I'll see some of you there.In addition to Cinema Village, it'll also be playing at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, Lincoln Center (tickets). Showtimes are varied, so go here for info.

Music to my ears... this is great news! Hat-tip to Variance for making another bold pick-up (recall Spike Lee's Red Hook Summer last year), going where others seemingly will not; and of course congrats to Terence Nance and company.

Winner of the Gotham award for Best Film Not Playing at a Theater Near You - Terence Nance's An Oversimplification of Her Beauty - will continue to claim that title, because, while it's now been acquired by a distribution company, the deal is specifically for US non-theatrical distribution (as in strictly home video/digital/VOD).

I wouldn't necessarily call this Terence Nance's *next* film, or his follow-up to his feature film debut, An Oversimplification Of Her Beauty; but if you've seen that film, and dug it, then I think you'll probably dig this series as well.
