Miyazaki’s Nausicaa in Theaters This Week

This week, Hayao Miyazaki’s Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind plays in select theaters throughout Florida and the rest of the nation as part of Ghibli Fest 2017 from Fathom Events.

From Fathom Events:

From Academy Award®-winning director Hayao Miyazaki, “Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind” is considered by many to be his masterwork — and there are few films, animated or otherwise, of such sweeping scope and grandeur. Set in a devastated future world decimated by atmospheric poisons and swarming with gigantic insects, Nausicaä is a young princess, both brave and innocent, whose love for all living things and passionate determination to understand the processes of nature lead her into terrible danger, sacrifice, and eventual triumph.

In its epic tale of warring clans, heroism and future worlds, “Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind” ranks not only among the finest animated films, but among the finest works of science fiction.

Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind is the first film to be produced by what would become Studio Ghibli and a timeless classic. Showings on September 24th and September 27th with feature the English language version that stars Patrick Stewart, Uma Thurman, and Shia LeBeouf. the showing on September 25th will be the Japanese language version with English subtitles.
