Cherokee filmmaker Gary D. Rhodes and Irish artist Cherith Brown worked together for more than five years to bring Edgar Allan Poe's renowned

poem, Ulalume (1847), to the screen

in an animated interpretation of

never-ending and mournful

sights and sounds. 


Barbara Steele, star of such films as The Pit and the Pendulum (1962), Bond actress Caroline Munro, and Poe filmmaker and actor Mark Redfield voice roles in this transatlantic production, which

features a haunting original score.

But Poe remains the essential

star—his past is always
