«Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind» is a lush dystopian epic that is considered by many to be Miyazaki's masterwork. Set in a future world devastated by atmospheric poisons and swarming with gigantic insects, «Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind» is the story of a young princess whose love for all living things and passionate determination to understand the processes of nature lead her into terrible danger, sacrifice, and eventual triumph. «Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind» is part of the film series «Heroic,» celebrating female heroes on screen throughout the month of August in conjunction with the MFA’s exhibition «Casanova’s Europe: Art, Pleasure, and Power in the 18th Century.»
This screening is co-presented with Anime Boston
and the Boston Women's Film Festival
