PRINCESS MONONOKE
MONONOKE-HIME
1997, Studio Ghibli, 134 min, Japan, Dir: Hayao Miyazaki

A landmark of animation and a film of unsurpassed power and beauty, Hayao Miyazaki’s epic story of conflict and balance between humans, gods and nature has been universally acclaimed by critics and broke the box office record on its original release in Japan. While defending his village from a demonic boar-god, the young warrior Ashitaka becomes afflicted with a deadly curse that grants him superhuman power in battle but will eventually take his life. Traveling west to find a cure and meet his destiny, he journeys deep into the sacred depths of the Great Forest where he meets San (Princess Mononoke), a girl raised by wolf-gods. Mononoke is a force of nature, riding bareback on a great white wolf and terrorizing the human outpost of Iron Town on the edge of the Forest.


CASTLE IN THE SKY will be dubbed in English from Japanese. Recommended ages: 7 to Adult. PRINCESS MONONOKE will be in Japanese with English subtitles. Recommended ages: 10+ to Adult.
