Edgar Allan Poe’s timeless chiller, The Tell-Tale Heart, takes a feminist perspective and a suspenseful new twist in this short film from award-winning director Eli Meissner.
Her Telling Heart brings a socially conscious commentary to the famous story by exploring the real psychological roots of the narrator’s “madness.” The visually stunning tale unfolds layer by layer through three dimensions of narrative.
When a young woman’s secret past resurfaces in the form of realistic nightmares, she begins to fear the evil vulture-eye of her watchful uncle. Our narrator is caught in a collision of reality and delusion.
Shot on location in upstate New York, the short film took advantage of the state-of-the-art RED ONE digital camera by award-winning Director of Photography Patrick Elliot. The film co-stars acclaimed Michigan actor Grant Krause (seen in the upcoming Gerard Butler film Machine Gun Preacher).
