Classics of Studio Ghibli: NAUSICAÄ OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND on 35mm!

Nausicaa

This first of many triumphs for Studio Ghibli is set a thousand years after a nuclear holocaust has gutted the globe. After the death of her father and an attack from the hostile Tormekia, Princess Nausicaä must use her uncanny ability to communicate with the giant crustacean Ohmu to unite her people against the threat of annihilation. Based on the manga of the same name and using Miyazaki’s distinctive stylistic flare for the dreamlike and fantastical, the film also inaugurates Miyazaki’s enduring collaboration and friendship with composer Joe Hisaishi. Visually breathtaking, with truly dexterous image making, the film introduced an original and lasting talent to the world of animation. (117 mins.)

NAUSICAÄ OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND screens Saturday, March 1 at 7pm as part of our Classics from Studio Ghibli series in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).

Advanced tickets are available for purchase here.
