Directed by Arwen Curry (USA, 2018, 65 min.). Digital.

This documentary explores the remarkable life and legacy of the late feminist author Ursula K. Le Guin, best known for groundbreaking science fiction and fantasy works such as A Wizard of Earthsea, The Left Hand of Darkness, and The Dispossessed. Le Guin defiantly held her ground on the margin of “respectable” literature until the sheer excellence of her work, at long last, forced the mainstream to embrace fantastic literature. Produced with Le Guin’s participation over the course of a decade, Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin takes viewers on an intimate journey of self-discovery as she comes into her own as a major feminist author who challenged viewers to imagine alternate worlds where women have the power, or where gender is fluid and changeable. The film features stunning animation and reflections by literary masters including Margaret Atwood, Neil Gaiman, David Mitchell, Michael Chabon, and more.
