Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin

“The flame in Ursula K. Le Guin only grew, the closer she came to the end of her life. By the time she was in her 80s, she was spitting out sparks like a campfire. ‘I was not saying what they expected the old lady from Oregon to say,’ Le Guin, who died in 2018 explains in a new documentary about her life, Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin.

“The prolific, legendary, and uniquely feminist science fiction and fantasy author never shied from challenging the goliath, the status quo, and, perhaps most importantly, her own shortcomings. The documentary features a key moment in some vintage black-and-white footage from a '70s writing convention, in which Le Guin addresses a question about the role of women, or lack thereof, in her excellent young adult fantasy series Earthsea. “The Earthsea books as feminist literature are a total, complete bust,” Le Guin says, with her signature candor.

“This sentiment is one of the main threads of the documentary, filmed over 10 years by director/producer Arwen Curry. The film wrapped just months after Le Guin's death.” - Bust Magazine
