will screen August 13, 1:30pm

as part of the

Chain NYC Film Festival

The Pit and the Pendulum – a musicabre“, my second musical short film adaptation of a classic Edgar Allan Poe short story (large intake of breath, then continue), is being presented by the Chain NYC Film Festival, celebrating their 10th anniversary. The full festival runs August 5 – 14.

The film, classified by the festival as a short, musical, experimental and a thriller, will screen August 13, 1:30pm at the Chain Theater in 312 West 36th street in Manhattan. You can order your ticket here. (FYI, the listing four shorts collected in the “Sound and Music” block is alphabetical, and not necessarily the order of screening, so “The Pit and the Pendulum – a musicabre” may screen first or last or somewhere in between, I don’t know – i.e. don’t be late. 😉 )

Me and Ed at Chain NYC
