Rivers to the Sea is an evocative portrait of Ernest Hemingway’s life and literature, with music and lyrical imagery that give primacy to his words and reflect the rhythms of his powerful prose.

There is no narrator. Hemingway is also evoked by people who knew him well, including his sister Carol, his son Patrick, Peter Viertel, screenplay adapter of The Sun Also Rises and The Old Man and the Sea, and by contemporaries like John Dos Passos, Archibald MacLeish and Gertrude Stein.

Hemingway was complicated and contradictory. He was mean and gregarious, a benefactor and cut-throat competitor, a gifted, generous listener and a badgering bully. Writing was his true north. He drew sustenance and story directly from the land and sea.

The screenplay for Rivers to the Sea, written by DeWitt Sage, was nominated for the 2006 primetime Emmy Award.
