Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, written and directed by Academy Award-winner Hayao Miyazaki, is an epic masterpiece of sweeping scope and grandeur that remains one of the most breathtaking and exhilarating animated films of all time.

A thousand years after the Seven Days of Fire destroyed civilization, warring human factions survive in a world devastated by atmospheric poisons and swarming with gigantic insects. The peaceful Valley of the Wind is nestled on the edge of the Toxic Forest and led by the courageous Princess Nausicaä, whose love of all living things leads her into terrible danger, as she fights to restore balance between humans and nature.

Generously sponsored by IATSE 856 Manitoba.

In a post-apocalyptic world, Nausicaä, a young charismatic princess, discovers both natural and out-of-this-world secrets about her home. In what is considered to be one of the first Studio Ghibli films, sci-fi fans are in for an adventure.
