MARGARET ATWOOD: A WORD AFTER A WORD AFTER A WORD IS POWER

MARGARET ATWOOD: A WORD AFTER A WORD AFTER A WORD IS POWER

Nancy Lang & Peter Raymont · Canada · 2019 · 93 mins · PG
IMDb
Margaret Atwood is a household name. Millions of readers worldwide know her books cover to cover, but few know the woman behind these stories. For a year, directors Nancy Lang and Peter Raymont and their film crew kept pace with Atwood and her late partner, Graeme Gibson, as they travelled to speaking engagements, spent time with family, and visited the set of The Handmaid’s Tale, the wildly popular TV series adapted from Atwood’s 1985 novel. Her poetry and prose are brought to life through voiceovers from Tatiana Maslany, revealing the personal and societal factors that inform Atwood’s stories. With personal stories shared by friends, family, and Atwood herself, the film also explores her upbringing in the Canadian wilderness and her early years as a poet, and provides a rare glimpse into the writer’s practice.—Toronto International Film Festival
“The remarkable thing about the film is the way Lang and Raymont recognize that they don’t have to do anything remarkable — no cinematic tricks, no animated sequences, no re-enactments — to bring her to life. They just let her be Margaret Atwood.” blogTO
An excellent documentary showcasing Atwood’s dry wit, eclectic background, and brilliant prose.” Wylie Writes
