Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (PG)

  • Director: Hayao Miyazaki
  • Country: Japan
  • Year: 1984
  • Running time: 118'

A visual marvel, Hayao Miyazaki's (Spirited Away, Totoro) breathtaking sci-fi/fantasy epic about a nature loving warrior princess brought a new artistic credibility to anime and created the blueprint for Studio Ghibli’s powerful female heroines. A thousand years after the great war, a toxic jungle fiercely guarded by giant insects threatens to engulf the world.

Fearing the jungle, a rival clan seeks to revive a monstrous biological weapon in order to control its spread. But can Nausicaä protect the people of the Valley of the Wind, halt the escalation to war and restore the bond between humanity and the earth? Miyazaki’s ecological and anti-war message is more pressing today than ever.

We'll be running a Studio Ghibli Costume competition at this screening - get creative!
