Writers on Film: Margaret Atwood
This event is sold out.
On the eve of her 70th birthday in 2010 Canadian star Margaret Atwood travelled to North America and the UK to publicise her dystopian novel The Year of the Flood, with a theatrical version of the novel which combined performance, music and readings. On route, Atwood’s primary concern was to ensure the survival of song birds. The documentary In The Wake of the Flood, directed by Ron Mann, captures Atwood’s unusual book tour, a kind of travelling medicine show.
