Thursday, November 9: Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive
Eric Stange | Documentary | 84 minutes | USA, 2016
Film rating(s): none
After his death, writer Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849) became a global icon of modern literature and a pop culture brand. An orphan in search of family, love, and literary fame, Poe struggled with alcoholism and was also a product of early 19th century American urban life: depressed from the era’s culture of death due to the high mortality rate and the struggles of living in poverty. Poe famously died under mysterious circumstances and his cause of death remains unknown. A discussion with director Eric Stange will follow the screening.
All screenings start at 7:00 pm and take place at Emerson’s Paramount Center Bright Family Screening Room, located at 559 Washington Street, Boston. Seating is first come, first served. There is no advance registration.
