Hemingway Animated - The Old Man and the Sea

A few years ago I posted an animated version of Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea. This afternoon through Open Culture I discovered a new animated video telling of Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea. This version is shorter than the previous video I posted. I'd say the video is more focused toward addressing the themes of Hemingway's work than it is the details. But you can decide for yourself in the four minute video below.

Applications for Education
This video could be used as a good model for having your students create short book trailer videos about books that they read for your class. If you're not sure what a book trailer is, I encourage you to visit Book Trailers for Readers. I have a list of five simple tools for creating book trailers here.
