An Oversimplification of Her Beauty by Terence Nance

9:00 pm @ Coral Gables Art Cinema

Join us Friday, May 25th (9pm) at the Coral Gables Art Cinema for a special screening of Terence Nance's An Oversimplification of Her Beauty. Among the most unique cinematic voices in the country, Oversimplification is a challenging, hypnotic, and beautifully sincere piece of Cinema. Don't miss this vulnerable, daringly original film being introduced by artist-curator Jason Jeffers (Third Horizon Film Festival).


A quixotic artist hypothesizes about why he feels bad when a mystery girl stands him up. The event prompts him to ask: what's the content of a momentary feeling? Is it the sum of your experiences? And, perhaps more importantly, are your experiences the sum of you?
