Director Terence Nance throws genre out the window to create a film that blends animation, romance, comedy, live-action, and genre, proving that Afrofuturism is a matter not only of content, but also of filmic style. An Oversimplification of Her Beauty follows an artist (Terence Nance) as he ponders his failed relationships, and the differences between romantic and platonic love. The film also boasts a captivating score from Flying Lotus.
