8:50pm - Monday, Mar 27, 2017
Twenty years after its release, PRINCESS MONONOKE - replete with epic story and breathtaking visuals - remains an undisputed animated triumph and one of the most thrilling adventures ever produced. Set in the late Muromachi period of Japan, the film follows the young prince Ashitaka as he’s caught in a struggle between the gods of a forest and the humans who consume its resources. At its core, PRINCESS MONONOKE is something of an "eco-fable," a statement on the natural world's devastation brought on by human advancement.
"The film's strength lies in its refusal to paint either its arguments or its characters in black and white: There are no pure heroes, no clear-cut villains and no pat answers." (LA WEEKLY)
"A spellbinding epic with great characters, visuals and pathos." (Film Threat)
