A new documentary explores the scientific side of the famed 19th-century poet Emily Dickinson. The Emily Dickinson Museum says the one-hour film “Seeing New Englandly’’ will get its first screening tomorrow night at Amherst Cinema. The documentary features a number of poems and passages that reflect Dickinson’s fascination with the natural world, including subjects such as the northern lights, volcanic eruptions, and unusual New England weather. Dickinson was born in Amherst and lived a mostly reclusive life there.
