Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (PG; 116 mins.)

Considered to be the first film from the famous Studio Ghibli! A Japanese animated post-apocalyptic fantasy adventure film not to be missed! If you’ve seen it before – time to see it again! Written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki, and based on his 1982 manga of the same name. Warrior/pacifist Princess Nausicaä desperately struggles to prevent two warring nations from destroying themselves and their dying planet. While created right before Studio Ghibli was founded, it is considered to be the beginning of the studio. Among its numerous awards, it won the Animage Anime Grand Prix prize in 1984. Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind is frequently ranked among the best animated films in Japan and is seen as a seminal influence on the development of anime. Miyazaki’s manga version of Nausicaä was written over a period of 12 years, with breaks taken to work on Studio Ghibli films. The Nausicaä manga is published in English by VIZ Media.
