Worlds of Ursula K Leguin

Director: Arwen Curry | USA, 2018 | 68 minutes | English, Hebrew subtitles

Science fiction and fantasy writer Ursula K. Le Guin, who died in early 2018, was a truly groundbreaking woman. Working in the male-dominated field of sci-fi, she became one of its most famous and influential voices thanks to works such as “A Wizard of Earthsea” and the Ekumen novels. When Le Guin began writing, science fiction wasn’t deemed respectable. But she liked it, and slowly Le Guin came into her own as a writer, discovering her distinctive voice – one that would become increasingly feminist over time. The modest Le Guin, who won numerous awards and accolades during her lifetime, describes her development as a writer, while notable figures like Neil Gaiman, Margaret Atwood, and Michael Chabon reflect on her lasting legacy. Getting to know Le Guin through this film will surely inspire those who haven’t read her books to delve into the incredible worlds she imagined.
