WORLDS OF URSULA K. LE GUIN

Dir: Arwen Curry
Canada / United States / 2018 / 65mins

‘Confirming her place as a major figure in American literature and as a spiky, rebellious and engaging personality’, Screen Daily

When Ursula K. Le Guin first started writing she was rejected by many publishers: even when she was eventually published, she was rejected by many critics. But she was determined to change the face of sci-fi writing to be accepted as serious literature. Paving the way for women writers to come, Le Guin’s pioneering books provided a critique of the real world, and laid the foundation for sci-fi feminists, from The Handmaid’s Tale to Harry Potter.

This inspiring documentary looks at the power of science fiction as an art form through one of its foremothers, exploring Le Guin’s life through the prism of the magical worlds she created.
