Ursula K. Le Guin (1929-2018) is best known for her classic Earthsea fantasy series and sci-fi masterworks such as The Left Hand of Darkness and The Dispossessed. Beginning in the mid-1960s, she soon became known for her cultural sophistication and artistry. Her work has often depicted futuristic or imaginary alternative worlds in politics, the natural environment, gender, religion, sexuality, and ethnography. Filmmaker Arwen Curry spent ten years creating the feature documentary The Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin, which features Margaret Atwood, Neil Gaiman, David Mitchell, Michael Chabon, and more. Join us for the San Francisco premiere screening of this intimate and multifaceted portrait, followed by discussion with Curry and Michael Chabon. $20 adv / $25 door

Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begin in art.” —Ursula K. Le Guin, National Book Awards, 2014
