screen captures from the film
POE [...and the Museum of Lost Arts] is a hybrid performance/film written and directed by Elise Kermani. POE/MOLA explores an aesthetic archeology of New York City, the folklore surrounding E.A. Poe's biography, and the technological experiments of mid-19th century America. The project examines the relationship between reality and illusion as demonstrated through Poe's stories and as seen through Charles Baudelaire, his brother of the heart and French translator. POE/MOLA tells a story somewhere between historical fact and magical realism.
POE/MOLA was shot in several historic areas of New York and at the 3LD Art and Technology Center, NYC. For more details about The POE Project see our archive page, contact MiShinnah Productions at: info-at-mishinnah-dot-orgJoin us on Facebook where we list the most recent activities.
