Princess Mononoke

Mononoke hime

Sixteen years in the making, Princess Mononoke is a sweeping historical fantasy with a powerful ecological message. After killing a rampaging boar-demon that attacked his village, a brave young warrior named Ashitaka is stricken by a curse that vastly increases his strength but will eventually kill him. Traveling to the west in search of a cure, Ashitaka comes upon Iron Town, an industrial settlement clear-cutting the nearby forest. Soon embroiled in a war between Iron Town and the forest’s giant animal gods, Ashitaka must try and bring peace to this war-torn land.
