ANIMATION FOR ADULTS
Miyazaki Double Feature!
NAUSICAÄ OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND / CASTLE IN THE SKY
30th Anniversary!

NAUSICAÄ OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND
KAZE NO TANI NO NAUSHIKA
1984, Studio Ghibli, 116 min, Japan, Dir: Hayao Miyazaki

This first of many triumphs for Studio Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki is set a thousand years after a nuclear holocaust has gutted the globe. After the death of her father and an attack by the hostile Tormekia, Princess Nausicaa 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 distinct stylistic flare for the dreamlike and fantastical, the film also inaugurates Miyazaki’s enduring collaboration and friendship with composer Joe Hisaishi. Its visually breathtaking, truly dexterous animation is more than worthy of a repeat viewing, let alone a first.


CASTLE IN THE SKY
TENKU NO SHIRO RAPYUTA
1986, Studio Ghibli, 124 min, Japan, Dir: Hayao Miyazaki

Don't miss this rare opportunity to see one of Hayao Miyazaki's most stunningly beautiful, exciting, and infrequently screened films. A young girl with a mysterious crystal pendant falls out of the sky and into the arms and life of young Pazu. Together they search for a floating island in the sky, site of a long-dead civilization promising enormous wealth and power to those who can unlock its secrets. CASTLE IN THE SKY is an early masterpiece of storytelling and filmmaking whose imaginative and ornately detailed vision presaged later films like PRINCESS MONONOKE and SPIRITED AWAY.


Both films in Japanese with English subtitles. | Screening format: 35mm
