A lot of people have asked us to present some Japanese animation films … so from now on, we will try to program at least one per month … This month, we will start with Princess Mononoke and we will present it for two nights: this Saturday and Sunday at 9:00 pm.

On a journey to find the cure for a Tatarigami’s curse, Ashitaka finds himself in the middle of a war between the forest gods and Tatara, a mining colony.

”Miyazaki folds a host of timely, hot-button issues into his tale: the plight of indigenous people and nature in the face of unchecked business interests, the death of spirituality in the name of social progress, misogyny in its many manifestations. Princess Mononoke is a Zeitgeist potpourri, strung with late-20th-century fear and anxiety.” ERNEST HARDY – LA Weekly
