WORLDS OF URSULA K. LE GUIN
We are so pleased to be sponsoring this film at Capitol Theater. We will have a Le Guin book table set up at this screening!
Decades before Hogwarts, Ursula K. Le Guin invited young readers to wizard school in her classic Earthsea fantasy series, and dazzled the science fiction world with masterworks like The Left Hand of Darkness and The Dispossessed. Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin tells the groundbreaking author’s story in her own words, sprinkled with stunning animation and commentary from literary luminaries like Margaret Atwood, Neil Gaiman, David Mitchell, and Michael Chabon. Produced with Le Guin’s participation over 10 years, the film is a breathtaking journey through the late writer’s career and her worlds, both real and fantastic.

“Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin is a much-needed antidote for the world right now” – Alexandra Vlak Cipolle, Bust Magazine
“What distinguishes the film is the way it explores Le Guin’s ideas, and the way she used science-fiction as a vehicle to explore human existence, politics, gender equality, the search for a perfect society and the price of happiness.” – Allan Hunter, Screen International
ADDITIONAL SCREENING: THURS, 4/4 at 4:00 PM.
Tickets available at the box office 1/2 hour before showtimes.
