‘Pose Down’ to be screened at Foulds Theatre

By Staff | May 21, 2009

“Pose Down,” an independent film shot in Fort Myers, is screening for the first time at the Lee County Alliance for the Arts’ Foulds Theatre next Friday, May 29 starting at 6:30 p.m. There will be a meet-and-greet reception afterwards with the film’s creators.

Starring Kristin Despaltro, Mot Filipowski, Adam Nee, Cosmo Pfiel, Katheryn Rossetter, Brian Slaten and Rich Sommer, “Pose Down” has been described as “a dark, offbeat dramedy.”

Set in the 1990s in Southwest Florida, the film revolves around three former high school classmates – The Bodybuilder, The Good Ol’ Boy and The Homecoming Queen – whose lives become entangled after the airing of a tabloid news program. “Pose Down” mines the ridiculous with the sublime in this personal tale about a woman’s unraveling life, and her attempt to “pose down” her past in order to look to a better future.

Director/writer Erika Yeomans has created an extensive body of work in theater, mixed media and film. Her videos and films have won grants and screened at film festivals and art institutions around the world, including London, New York, Los Angeles, Berlin and Amsterdam.

Visit the Alliance on May 29 beginning at 6:30 p.m. to view “Pose Down,” a captivating film that features familiar Fort Myers landmarks. Recognize storefronts, beaches and more as you see the film in the Lee County Alliance for the Arts’ Foulds Theatre.

The screening is sponsored by The Rock For Hair and Nails, Heart & Pole, Austin’s Wine Cellar, Roxann Dickey, Lee County Alliance for the Arts and Amerivest Realty – Millie Dinkel and Alex Ancefsky.
