Original Title:

Nausicaä Of The Valley Of The Wind

For a film made in 1984, Nausicaä has aged remarkably well, proving to be ahead of its time with its urgent eco-warning. It is the release that anime powerhouse Studio Ghibli was built on and, with its stirring tale of a princess brokering peace between giant insects and warring tribes of humans, a dreamlike thing of beauty.

Dreamlike Ghibli animation that's well worth seeking out.
