A mesmerising blend of fantasy and science-fiction set centuries in the future, in a world almost swallowed by a polluted forest full of giant insects. Miyazaki's titular character is a courageous girl whose peaceful country is caught up in a conflict between greater powers.
Misuse of technology threatens man and nature in this story based on Miyazaki's epic-length graphic novel.
1984 Dir. Hayao Miyazaki 116 min (In Japanese with English subtitles)
