PRESS

"[A]stoundingly beautifulโ€ฆ. [S]ublime" - Filmmaker Magazine

"With its blend of animation and live action, Terence Nanceโ€™s first feature, An Oversimplification of Her Beauty, from 2012, revealed him to be one of the worldโ€™s most imaginative young directors. His twenty-three minute film Swimming in Your Skin Againโ€ฆ goes even further, with its allusive collage of live action and special effects, centered on music and danceโ€ฆ. [B]y way of ecstatic imagery, thrillingly balletic performances, and a mighty sense of humor, [Nance] sketches a personal mythology of black American history and culture." - The New Yorker

"Terence Nance premiered [his debut feature] An Oversimplification of Her Beauty at Sundance in 2012, to much acclaimโ€ฆ. It was funny and moving and necessary, both as a reminder that young black filmmakers arenโ€™t an emerging trend but have always been here, and that experimental filmmaking can be accessible, even relatable. Though Nance hasnโ€™t yet directed another full-length, all that heโ€™s created since, whether politically charged and pertinentโ€ฆ or idyllicโ€ฆ toy with elements of the sublime. Swimming in Your Skin Again, a moving and magical realist poem, is no differentโ€ฆ. Even in its dreamlike roaming, it is intuitive and connective--like breathing or like birth." - Hyperallergic
