Please note the screening on Wednesday, December 20th at 20:30 will be followed by a live recording of our Celebrating Cinema podcast. Join us and let’s talk, on air, about Studio Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki’s amazing ecological fable Princess Mononoke!
Young warrior Ashitaka receives a wound that refuses to heal in a battle with a cursed beast. Searching for a remedy for the supernatural injury, he leaves his remote village for the forbidding forests of the west, where he finds a human enclave under siege from divine powers: deities of times past, the wolf gods, and San, a wild girl of the forest.
Hayao Miyazaki’s masterpiece depicts the clash of the natural world and its old gods, with the rise of humans and the beginnings of modern civilisation. It shows three elements of the Japanese psyche warring for supremacy in an ecological fable of stirring mythic power.
