This feature documentary explores the remarkable life and legacy of the late feminist author Ursula K. Le Guin. Le Guin, who passed away in early 2018 at the age of 88, was best known for her groundbreaking science fiction and fantasy works such as A Wizard of Earthsea and The Dispossessed, and played a large role in getting the mainstream to embrace fantasy literature. Director Arwen Curry traces Le Guin’s 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. Discussion with director Arwen Curry
