Margaret Atwood: Live In Cinemas

Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Following a sell-out Sage One event, here is a second chance to see In Conversation with Margaret Atwood, the Canadian novelist, poet, literary critic and inventor, filmed from the stage of the National Theatre, London. The publication of Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale in 1985 and the current, Emmy Award-winning television series have created a cultural phenomenon, as handmaids have become a symbol of women’s rights and a protest against misogyny and oppression. Atwood will be interviewed by broadcaster and author Samira Ahmed in a conversation spanning the length of Atwood’s remarkable career, her diverse range of works including her latest novel The Testaments, and why she has returned to her seminal handmaid story, 34 years later. Running Time 1h40 mins approx. This is a 12+ event. Under 16s to be accompanied by an adult.
