Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin – Dokumentarfilm von Arwen Curry
in Originalfassung – mit englischem Untertitel / in english with english subtitles
Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin is a feature documentary exploring 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. Her fascinating story
has never before been captured on film.
Produced with Le Guin’s participation over the course of a decade, Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin is
a journey through the writer’s career and her worlds, both real and fantastic. Viewers will join the
writer on an intimate journey of self-discovery as she comes into her own as a major feminist
author, opening new doors for the imagination and inspiring generations of women and other
marginalized writers along the way. The film features stunning animation and reflections by literary
luminaries including Margaret Atwood, Neil Gaiman, David Mitchell, Michael Chabon, and more.
