Nobel Prize Banner Rev

Nobel-Winning Authors on Screen

“Narrative is radical, creating us at the very moment it is being created.” - Toni Morrison, Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech, 1993

It’s a tradition unlike any other: on October 7, the Nobel Prize will announce its latest laureate in literature, adding a new name to the canonical ranks of writers like Ernest Hemingway, Kazuo Ishiguro and Canada’s Alice Munro. In honour of this annual celebration of the world’s greatest storytellers, we present three wonderful documentaries about laureates who have reshaped our collective imagination and expanded our understanding of what it means to be human.
