An exploration of Science Fiction’s “golden age” of the forties and fifties through the eyes of radical thinker and science-fiction pioneer, Judith Merril. Filmed shortly before her death at the age of 74, this film salutes Judith Merril—writer, editor and icon of the science fiction literary genre. A candid and clever trailblazer, she was one of the first writers to create stories with believable female characters in a medium notorious for “she-devil” aliens and damsels in distress. Merril muses on the role science fiction played as an outlet for socio-political criticism during the McCarthy era and its influence as a blueprint for exploring space and other future frontiers. Looking back on her career, she recalls the ingenious men and women who dared to dream of different worlds and mischievously declares, “ You have to make your own reality out of your dreams.”
