CASTLES IN THE SKY: STUDIO GHIBLI

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

Kaze no tani no Nausicaä

A breathtakingly ambitious sci-fi/fantasy epic, Nausicaä brought a new artistic credibility to anime, and its success led to the founding of Studio Ghibli. Nausicaä is a warrior princess in a world whose ecosystem has been destroyed in the wake of an apocalyptic war. When an airship with a monstrous creature inside crashes in the Valley, Nausicaä is forced to defend her homeland.
