Friday and Saturday, July 6th and 7th at 8:00 p.m. 10 Channel Center Street, Fort Point, Boston 02210 Reservations: phone: 800-838-3006, web: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/254521 Promotional video: http://youtu.be/qDrkyyd3h8I You are invited to Fort Point Theatre Channel's tenth Exclamation Point! to view the work of Fort Point’s residents, artists, and friends inspired by film. The artistic projects cross numerous genres – from all varieties of cinema – to music, theatre and animation. Among other thrilling debuts, the program features the fairy tale "Où est Fleuri Rose?" which follows the adventures of a pink teddy bear in Quebec. This cinematic-animation is the collaboration between composer, Mark Warhol and animation-artists, Nick Thorkelson and Amy MacDonald. Additionally, the evening showcases the experimental work of Pelle Lowe. Lowe’s "Earthly Possessions" is a trance film that uses the heightened emotional language of Emily Brontë's "Wuthering Heights" and Michel Foucault's "Herculine Barbin" as its starting-point for a meditation on the eroticism of grief and the fluidity of gender-identity, in extremis. These two films are complimented by David Henry Haan's play "It Always Rains When John Cusack Is in Anguish." This drama explores the comedic encounter between John Cusack and a woman at a bus stop. Film shorts and other works include: "Soundproof" by Rocco Giuliano, which takes a whimsical look at the filmmaker's old and new home, while exploring the persistent tension between individuality and community. "o(77)" by Julie Miller, is a visionary experience intended to induce trance through imagery, in order to experience altered states. "Vacancy" by Mike Ware, is an intensely personal short film – and a meditation on the Catholic Church. "The Passenger" by Julie Zammarchi, is an animated film of the memories, dreams, and visions that crowd a woman's consciousness as she travels in a car toward her own death. "Breakfast," by Julie Mallozzi, is an installation piece that concerns family, time – and the mutability of memory. "Circle Song," by Douglas Urbank, is a Fantasia on a theme of nine repeating patterns in six colors. The work is comprised of a digital transfer of a handmade 16-mm film, a collage of hand-painted leader, altered found footage, adhesive overlays and applied optical sound.

It is nurtured and maintained through the artistic talents who live and work in Fort Point – and enriches the lives of those residing in Boston and beyond.
