Feature Presentation: The Fall of Usher (World Premiere)
A young man with everything to prove and nothing to lose sees his life overtaken by murder, madness and the macabre. Based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe. Don't miss this WORLD PREMIERE of Brian Cunningham's new feature film! Themes of loss and grief, which figure heavily into Poe's work, are told in this modern but classic take on Poe's stories.
We are honored to be joined by lead actor Riker Hill and producer Nic Brown for Q&A afterward.
Grief is a cruel but necessary mistress to Poe's psyche as she processes the end of a long-term relationship with Lenore. Living in and with shadows, what was evermore is nevermore.
The Fall of Usher
A young man with everything to prove and nothing to lose sees his life overtaken by murder, madness and the macabre. Based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe.
Riker is amazed to finally be able to reveal the macabre work that has been so very long-awaited. And they cannot wait to see the works that others have to share as well. The past year or so has been a long period of darkness; thankfully getting to talk, meet, and share, with artists and friends again, is a bright and warming light. Maybe through exploring the fear and dread that is created in art, we can find our way through the dread and dark that we have been thrust into.
