Avant Premiere
In the presence of the film team

An animated feature based on the masterpiece by Edgar Allan Poe

A feature film anthology with five stories inspired by Edgar Allan Poe, each crafted in a graphic design uniquely suited to the individual segments and inspired by visual artists, whose style best expresses the psychological depth and complexity of Poe’s universe: from comics and graphic novels to the pictorial world of German Expressionism, Gothic horror sensibilities and a visual nod to the worlds of Goya, Egon Schiele, Piranesi or the universe created by comic book artist Alberto Breccia.
