The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre” was scheduled to receive its New York City screening premiere next Wednesday, March 25, at the Anthology Theater , sponsored by New Filmmakers NY.

Well, we lately hit a little snag in the form of a global pandemic (Covid-a-thunk-it?!), and New Flimmakers NY has had to postpone their brick-and-mortar-audience-in-close-quarters screenings in the Anthology theater.  Again, the screenings are postponed, not cancelled.

But the March 25 screening will still take place, as a live-screening on New Filmmakers NY’s Facebook page!

“The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre” is still scheduled to begin streaming at 7:45pm, followed by a Q&A.  I recommend tuning in early to be sure not to miss it, and also to watch the other programmed shorts:

 

6:00PM NEWFILMMAKERS SPECIAL PROGRAM

Adrienne Gruben LILY (2019, 26 minutes, digital)*

6:30PM NEWFILMMAKERS FIRST SHORT FILM PROGRAM

Elia Sahlman BUT MOM! IT IS THE END OF THE WORLD (2019, 9 minutes, digital)*

Alexandra Neuman OVA (2019, 16 minutes, digital)*

Julian Karian ALONE (2019, 19 minutes, digital)*

Greti Claggett STORMCHASER (2019, 28 minutes, digital)*

7:45PM NEWFILMMAKERS SECOND SHORT FILM PROGRAM

Danny Ashkenasi THE TELL-TALE HEART- a musicabre (2019, 38 minutes, digital)*

A musical adaptation of the Edgar Allan Poe’s gothic horror story. A man is so disturbed by an old man’s “vulture eye” he resolves to murder and dismember him. But the murderer is driven to madness and confession by the incessant beating of victim’s heart under the floor boards.

 

 

I will participate in a live-stream Q&A, so stick around for that too!

Ed and I were planning to host a reception with baked goods after the screening at the Anthology, alongside our seven foot Tell-Tale Banner, which I brought back from the London International Filmmaker’s Festival (blog post on that still forthcoming).

But times call for an adjustment.

 

Yet Social Distancing really means physical distancing.  We can still be social and share the Tell-Tale experience for one evening via Facebook’s live streaming.

 

No baked goods, but still lots of Poe and cellos.

 

and music, madness, murder!
