In Hayao Miyazaki’s beloved animated film, the world has turned into a toxic wasteland in the fallout of global war. Princess Nausicaä’s home, the Valley of the Wind, is one of the few places remaining green and untouched, but becomes threatened by the mutated and destructive creatures of the post-apocalyptic world as well as the dangerous ambitions of rivaling empires of humans. Even in this, his second film, Miyazaki’s trademark style and themes are well established, combining his imaginative vision with environmental concerns. Subtitled 35mm print!
