Hemingway Gets The Ken Burns Treatment

I came across this on line. From .

I am excited to see how Hemingway and his life are viewed through the lens of master documentarian Burns.

Hemingway is a three-part, six-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 the façade of the public man, becoming intimately familiar with this brilliant, ambitious, charismatic, and egocentric genius. Directed by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, written by Geoffrey C. Ward, and produced by Sarah Botstein, Lynn Novick, and Ken Burns, Hemingway premieres April 5-7 on PBS. (6 hours)
