“A complex look at the leading light, if not the inventor, of that strange construction called Canadian Literature, and now also the reigning prophet of the globe’s dystopic future” – The Ex-press

A critically acclaimed new documentary about the author of “The Handmaid’s Tale”: Margaret Atwood, the film explores Atwood’s “backstory”, her early days in the Canadian wilderness and as a poet. Atwood’s novels are also explored, including her latest, The Testaments, the highly anticipated sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale. Personal stories are shared by friends, family and, of course, directly by Atwood herself.

Winner — Best Documentary / San Luis Obispo Documentary Festival

The Globe and Mail called the film “Intimate and poetic“.

“We get a rare glimpse at the author’s practice as she completes the final chapters of The Testaments on planes, on boats and on the road.” – CBC

“If you’re looking for a rough guide to her life and work, with extensive segments on the project that made her a household name, this will do.” – Now
