Oversimplification of her Beauty

Oakland director explores love in new film

May 3, 2012

A documentary by Oakland filmmaker Terence Nance made a big impression at the San Francisco International Film Festival. It’s called An Oversimplification of Her Beauty. It’s as much a multimedia work of art as it is a movie. Nance wrote, directed, starred in, and wrote music for the film, which explores the mind of a man who is falling in love. KALW contributor Kevin Robinson sat down with Nance to talk about an earlier film by Nance called How Do You Feel.

TERRENCE NANCE: It has a very experimental feel to it.
