Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin

Sat 30 Oct, 4.30PM | Union Church | ★ Documentary

An intimate insight into the real and imaginary worlds of Ursula K Le Guin, one of the most prolific, pioneering sci-fi writers of all time.

 

Documentary that 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 so-called respectable literature until the sheer excellence of her work forced the mainstream to embrace fantastic literature. Her fascinating story has never before been captured before on film.

Produced with Le Guin’s participation over the course of a decade, and featuring stunning animation and reflections by other literary luminaries, the documentary is a journey through the writer’s career and her worlds, both real and fantastic. Ursula goes 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 marginalised writers along the way.
