Ernest Hemingway Conference: Documentaries

XVII Biennial International Ernest Hemingway Conference

Abstract/Summary

"More than 40 years after his death, Hemingway is one of the most widely read and written about American authors. Many of his works are still in print, some in as many as 20 languages, including A Farewell to Arms, The Sun Also Rises and For Whom the Bell Tolls. It is the art of Hemingway's story telling that forms the heart of this film, the point of departure from which Hemingway's work is uniquely explored."

Watch Later: Ken Burns' Hemingway (2019)

"Hemingway is a two-part, three-to-four-hour documentary film that examines visionary work and the turbulent life of Ernest Hemingway, one of the greatest and most influential writers America has ever produced. Interweaving his eventful biography, a life lived at the ultimately treacherous nexus of art, fame, and celebrity, with carefully selected excerpts from his luminous short stories, novels, and non-fiction, we will see beyond façade of the public man, becoming intimately familiar with this brilliant, ambitious, charismatic, and egocentric genius. Directed by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, Hemingway is slated for national broadcast on PBS in 2019." -- From Ken Burns
