Princess Mononoke with Naomi Klein
DIRECTOR: HAYAO MIYAZAKI
Hosted by Naomi Klein.
Clashing with a archdemon boar, warrior Ashitaka is stricken with an empowering but ultimately fatal curse, and journeying into the unknown of the Great Forest in search of a cure, meets the fierce titular warrior woman, raised by wolf-gods. Miyazaki’s gorgeously animated, mythic tale about a battle between humans and ancient forest spirits is an epic with an environmental message, justly a phenomenon in Japan on its initial release.
Screening in Japanese with English subtitles
