Flying Lotus & Jay Z Join Forces On New Indie Flick
29 April 2013
Trevor Nance’s 'An Oversimplification Of Her Beauty' is due to premiere in NYC later this week. The mixed animated/live action film "documents the relationship between Terence and a lovely young woman as it teeters on the divide between platonic and romantic."
Jay-Z is listed as an executive producer alongside comic Wyatt Cenac, actress Joy Bryant, and journalist Dream Hampton. Interestingly, the small indie film also features original music from Brainfeeder head honcho Flying Lotus. On the film's blog, Nance explains Lotus’s involvement:
“I was trying to meet Flying Lotus, my favourite musician right now. Myself, my brother Nelson…and one of my DP’s Matthew Bray were successful. It was great connecting with – let me re-iterate – my favorite musician since Stevie Wonder.”
An Oversimplification Of Her Beauty opens in selected theatres on April 26. You can watch the lovely trailer below, backed by Flying Lotus's ‘Computer Face // Pure Being’:
