Princess Mononoke

PG

Last shown on 6 November 2018

Young warrior Ashitaka receives a wound that refuses to heal in a battle with a cursed beast. Searching for a remedy for the supernatural injury, he leaves his remote village for the forbidding forests of the south, where he finds a human enclave under siege from divine powers: deities of times past, wolves of the hills, and San, a wild girl of the woods.

Hayao Miyazaki’s masterpiece depicts the clash of the natural world and its old gods, with the rise of humans and the beginnings of modern civilisation. It shows three elements of the Japanese psyche warring for supremacy in an ecological fable of stirring mythic power.

The first of Miyazaki’s films to gain mainstream attention in the West, Princess Mononoke features an English-language script by Neil Gaiman, author of Anansi Boys and American Gods, and vocal performances from Claire Danes, Minnie Driver, Billy Crudup and Gillian Anderson.
