Miyazaki's dreamlike and detailed environmental narrative starts off our series Spirited Away: Studio Ghibli and Worlds of Imagination. A thousand years after the Seven Days of Fire destroyed civilization, warring human factions survive in a world devastated by atmospheric poisons and swarming with gigantic insects. The peaceful Valley of the Wind is nestled on the edge of the Toxic Forest and led by the courageous Princess Nausicaä, whose love of all living things leads her into terrible danger, as she fights to restore balance between humans and nature. "The action sequences are as suspenseful as any in the director’s career; the most impressive scenes, though, may be the slower ones, which consider how humanity might evolve after driving itself to near extinction" –Chicago Reader.
