The Boston Public Library has the perfect antidote to your post-Halloween blues: a screening of a new documentary about the godfather of horror fiction himself.
“Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive,” the latest entry in PBS’s “American Masters” series, was filmed at Fort Independence on Castle Island in 2015. The 84-minute doc, which stars Denis O’Hare (pictured) and focuses on the circumstances surrounding Poe’s death at the age of 40 in 1849, premiered Monday and can be streamed for free on PBS’s site until Nov. 27.
Following Saturday’s screening, which is co-sponsored by the Boston Athenaeum, there will be a Q&A with the film’s director, Eric Stange, of Arlington-based Spy Pond Productions, along with executive producer Susan Tane and Boston College professor Paul Lewis, who helped lead the campaign to get a statue of Poe erected near the Boston Common.
The film will also be screened Dec. 6 at the Newton Public Library, where Stange and Lewis will be joined by Pulitzer-winning biographer Megan Marshall, and on Nov. 9 at Emerson College’s Bright Theater, mere steps from Poe’s birthplace.
