Ernest Hemingway 4x60, 2x120

Ernest Hemingway examines the life and work of one of America’s greatest writers—a man who changed the course of literature with his spare, luminous, aggressively modern style, and his unflinching, hard-edged but also deeply romantic and quintessentially American stories, novels and essays. This Ken Burns film celebrates Hemingway’s genius, illuminates his character, makes sense of the tragedy of his final years, explains the ways in which the life he lived and his fame influenced his writing and situates him within the context of American culture in the 20th century. It is a story that is epic and intimate, profoundly personal and transcendently universal, and it is a story that has never before been told on film.
