Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind
DIRECTOR: HAYAO MIYAZAKI
Miyazaki’s jaw-dropping feature debut is a film of astonishing imagination and imagistic grandeur, a fantasia that lays its scene years after a devastating global war, in the Valley of the Wind, a seaside kingdom spared from the touch of a creeping, all-devouring poisonous jungle thanks to the protection of its insect protectors and Princess Nausicaä, leader of the human population. Brave and good at heart, Nausicaä ventures to understand the terrible wrong that has occurred, and her mission will lead her through danger, discovery, and scenes of unforgettable otherworldly magnificence.
NOTE: We will be screening the film with English subtitles.
