HEMINGWAY Screening & Discussion


New Hampshire PBS, in partnership with New Hampshire Humanities and the New Hampshire Writers’ Project, presents an online screening and discussion of the new Ken Burns film, HEMINGWAY, on Thursday, April 1st at 6 pm

HEMINGWAY is a three-part series, directed by Ken Burns and longtime collaborator Lynn Novick, that paints an intimate picture of Hemingway, the writer, who captured on paper the complexities of the human condition in spare and profound prose and whose work remains deeply influential around the world. The film also penetrates the myth of Hemingway, the man’s man, to reveal a deeply troubled and ultimately tragic figure and explores Hemingway’s limitations and biases as an artist and a man of his time.

After the 30-minute HEMINGWAY screener, New Hampshire Humanities Public Programs Director Tricia Peone will engage in a conversation with HEMINGWAY documentary writer Geoffrey C. Ward, Board Chair of New Hampshire Writers' Project Masheri Chappelle, and New Hampshire author Robert Wheeler. 



The new Ken Burns documentary HEMINGWAY airs on New Hampshire PBS on April 5, 6, & 7 at 8 pm.


Corporate funding for HEMINGWAY was provided by Bank of America. Major funding was provided by the Annenberg Foundation, The Arthur Vining Davis Foundations, and by ‘The Better Angels Society,’ and its members John & Leslie McQuown, the Elizabeth Ruth Wallace Living Trust, John & Catherine Debs, the Fullerton Family Charitable Fund, the Kissick Family Foundation, Gail M. Elden, Gilchrist & Amy Berg, Robert & Beverly Grappone, Mauree Jane & Mark Perry; and by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and PBS.
