George Kuchar’s diary “Kingdom By the Sea” (2002) is structured around, and 
contains a “performance” of, Edgar Allen Poe’s poem “The Enigma.”

Exciting topic! As a handcrafted cinema maker myself, my mind immediately goes 
to Jan Svankmajer. Many of his films are based off of literary tales and 
stories. (From writers such as Lewis Carroll, Edgar Allen Poe, Horace Walpole, 
etc). Ah, and then thinking of Poe, I think of about Jean Epstein's Fall of the 
House of Usher. 
Best of luck!

  There are dozens, no, hundreds of poetry films and poetry videos (or 
videopoems), which is to says, films and videos that incorporate poetry and 
poetic texts on the sound track or in the images or both. Perhaps that is not 
the sort of thing you are looking for, but if it is I could send you titles of 
some of my favourite examples—though I have to say they would not include 
recent work (I haven’t paid any serious attention to poetry films/videos since 
the 1990s). The person who has paid attention to the whole development of 
poetry films/videos and has published a manifesto on the subject is Tom 
Konyves. I don’t think he would mind my giving you his email address:

  Dear friends,

  Im currently lecturing a course on literature and visual arts and i would 
like to approach/show the students experimental films based in/inspired by 
literary pieces, only I need your help to do so. Any recommendations will be 
very welcome.

  Thanks very much,
