Moscow Film Society: Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

Wednesday, April 17 at 7 PM

“Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind is a true masterpiece, a must-see for all, and for me, Miyazaki’s best work.”
— Panos Kotzathanasis, Asian Movie Pulse
Moscow Film Society and University of Idaho Library present NAUSICAÄ OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND as part of their Main Street Video Staff Picks series. The Staff Picks series recreates the video store’s iconic employee-curated shelf and coincides with the release of UI Library’s Main Street Video project, an oral historical exploration of the last video store in Moscow.
Warrior and pacifist Princess Nausicaä desperately struggles to prevent two warring nations from destroying themselves and their dying planet.  It’s a compelling, well-written, and emotionally powerful film that explores anti-war and environmentalist themes while also being funny and lighthearted at just the right times. The video store became the de facto home of anime releases at a time when even Miyazaki films were not domestically released in theaters but now you can see one of his earliest masterpieces on the big screen! English Dubbed.
Sponsored by University of Idaho Library and the Main Street Video Project.
Rated: PG | 1 hr 58 min | Tickets: $8 Adult / $5 Child / Film Pass
