Executive producers Jay-Z, DreamHampton, and Wyatt Cenac present Terence Nance's explosively creative debut featureYou’ve just arrived home after a bad day. You’re broke and lonely, even though you live in the biggest and busiest city in America. You do, however, have one cause for mild optimism: you seem to have captured the attention of an intriguing young lady. You’ve rushed home to clean your apartment before she comes over. In your haste, you see that you’ve missed a call. There’s a voice mail; she tells you that she won’t be seeing you tonight.
With arresting insight, vulnerability, and a delightful sense of humor, Terence Nance’s explosively creative debut feature, AN OVERSIMPLIFICATION OF HER BEAUTY, documents the relationship between Terence and a lovely young woman (Namik Minter) as it teeters on the divide between platonic and romantic. Utilizing a tapestry of live action and various styles of animation, Terence explores the fantasies, emotions, and memories that race through his mind during a singular moment in time.
The Alexandria Movie Group is a group that meets up for films and film festivals in the DC Area.
If you like seeing movies on the big screen rather than your TV and hanging out with some great people, join us for showings of whatever is playing in theaters around the DC Area. After the movie, we will grab a drink, a snack, or dinner near by the theater. The meetings after are more about getting to talk and hang out with some great people than the food and drink.
Please note that this group does not get free screenings, everyone pays for their own ticket. This group is here as a community of great people and movie lovers.
