Known for his heartwarming, nostalgia triggering storylines and visual artistry, Hayao Miyazaki creates narratives that showcase his unique outlooks on life. Driven by his passion for environmental justice, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind is the story of a young princess of a peaceful valley, searching for answers and resources that will keep her village alive in a post apocalyptic jungle. 1,000 years after the “Seven Days of Fire”, kingdoms that had survived continue to declare war on the jungle’s colossal insects that seem to be imagined from a psychedelic nightmare. Will Nausicaä be able to keep the peace between humanity and the gigantic invertebrates? Come find out this spring on 35mm at 5th Avenue Cinema!
