Classics of Studio Ghibli: PRINCESS MONONOKE

Princess Mononoke

A landmark of animation and a film of unsurpassed power and beauty, Miyazaki’s epic story of conflict and balance between humans, God, and nature has been universally acclaimed by critics and broke the box office record on its original release in Japan. While defending his village from a demonic boar-god, the young warrior Ashitaka becomes afflicted with a deadly curse that grants him superhuman power in battle but will eventually take his life. Traveling west to find a cure and meet his destiny, he journeys deep into the sacred depths of the Great Forest, where he meets San (Princess Mononoke), a girl raised by wolf-gods. Mononoke is a force of nature, riding bareback on a great white wolf and terrorizing the human outpost of Iron Town on the edge of the forest. (134 mins.)

PRINCESS MONONOKE screens Saturday, March 15 at 4:30pm as part of our Classics from Studio Ghibli series in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).
