“We live in capitalism, its power seems inescapable – but then, so did the divine right of kings.”
These iconic words were spoken at the end of 2014 by the late groundbreaking science fiction, fantasy and feminist writer Ursula Le Guin. With her work – which spans almost 60 years – she introduced mind bending worlds and alternative futures.
Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin is a feature documentary exploring the remarkable life and legacy of Le Guin by director Arwen Curry. It’s produced with the writer’s own participation over the course of a decade. Le Guin's fascinating story has never before been captured on film. Especially now, in the 21st century reality of planetary collapse, the legacy of Le Guin is an indispensable gateway to rethink our society and its obsessive technologies through other ways of being.
