Oversimplification

Rooftop Films will host a screening of Terence Nance'An Oversimplification of Her Beauty on Thursday, June 21 at Dekalb Market in Brooklyn.

We have talked about the film extensively on the site, and if you're in New York next week, here’s your chance to see it outdoors and in Brooklyn. Terence will be there to perform with his band Terence etc at 8:30pm and after the screening for a Q&A.

If you haven't read it yet, check out Jasmin's exclusive interview with writer/director Nance HERE.

Here's the official synopsis:

Love is a complicated emotion, up and down, stopping and starting, and (at its worst, or, depending on your attitude, at its apotheosis) love is entirely irrational. Yet your average romantic movie adheres to a paint-by-numbers design and fill-in-the-blank plot. An Oversimplification of Her Beauty colors vividly outside the lines and throws the plot (and reality itself) in a blender, constructing an original cinematic experience from thinning VHS tape, Japanese wood joinery and more animation styles than Rooftop’s annual “Dark ‘Toons” show. Nance’s debut feature is actually a short film (“How Would You Feel?”), with an inserted documentary explication. The work posits an educational thesis, but could be called a self-help film, in the form of an unfolding diary (that contains a trailer for second, unmade film titled “Subtext,” plus recreations from literary inspirations, and more.) To summarize: An Oversimplification is anything but a simple romantic comedy.

Thanks to Alece Oxendine for the heads up!
