This 2018 American documentary by Arwen Curry offers a pensive reflection on the life, work, and philosophy of American novelist Ursula K. Le Guin. Intertwining interviews with notable fantasy, science fiction, and fiction writers such as Neil Gaiman, David Mitchell, and Michael Chabon, the film exhibits an orchestral quality: it’s less interested in a clear narrative arc than in providing an impression of a lifetime, accented by original footage of Le Guin before her death in 2018. It becomes rapidly clear just how universal Le Guin’s work was as the film explores its incredible ideological breadth, ranging from her writing inspired by anarchist utopias to her reckoning with the atrocities committed against Native peoples by white folks to the eventual emergence of feminism in the Earthsea series she is perhaps best known for. In the documentary, Le Guin describes her work as one of “holding doors or windows open” for people; this film does just that, opening an intimate window onto the tender interiority and expansive curiosity of Le Guin’s mind.
