Watch the New Trailer for Worlds of Ursula K Le Guin, the First Feature Film on the Pioneering Sci-Fi Author

On June 10th, at the Sheffield Doc/Fest in Eng­land, direc­tor Arwen Cur­ry will pre­miere Worlds of Ursu­la K Le Guin, the first fea­ture film about the ground­break­ing sci­ence fic­tion writer. The film’s web­site notes that “Cur­ry filmed with Le Guin for 10 years to pro­duce the film, which unfolds an inti­mate jour­ney of self-dis­cov­ery as Le Guin 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.” Star­ring Le Guin her­self, who sad­ly passed away ear­li­er this year, Worlds of Ursu­la K Le Guin fea­tures appear­ances by Mar­garet Atwood, David Mitchell, Neil Gaiman, Samuel R. Delany, and Michael Chabon. You can watch the brand new trail­er for the film above.
