Far more than a biography,
Edgar Allan Poe: BURIED ALIVE employs a variety of tools to create a narrative that is both visually stunning and deeply engaging. We draw on the rich palette of Poe’s evocative imagery and sharply drawn plots to help us bring new understanding to his life, his place in American art and history, and the iconic position he holds in popular culture around the world.
This film has received a production grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, and will be broadcast on the acclaimed PBS arts and culture series American Masters.
