Margaret Atwood is in serious demand these days. With her dystopian novel of brutal gender divides, The Handmaid’s Tale, adapted for TV and the anticipated sequel, The Testaments, making international news, the 80-year-old’s fiction is arguably more relevant than ever. Filmed over a year, this documentary follows Margaret and her partner, Graeme Gibson (who died in September), as they jet to speak-ing engagements across the world and sheds light beyond the headlines. Who is the woman behind these stories? How does she always seem to know what’s to come? Why does her work often meditate on survival?
