Stories connect our communities and cultures to nature and the environments in which we live. Join POST as we screen Studio Ghibli’s Princess Mononoke in Theatre on Sunday March 19, doors open at 6 PM. Tickets are available online and at the door.
Set in 14th Century Japan, Princess Mononoke is a beloved film that follows a young tribal warrior named Ashitaka, who stumbles into a bitter war in which a girl raised by wolves defends her forest home against the people of Iron Town, who have entered into conflict with the spirits of nature by cutting down a forest to dig their mines. This epic masterpiece by director Hayao Miyazaki deals with themes of people’s relationship to nature, the consequences of taking too much from the land, and the challenge of living in balance with the ecosystems that sustain us.
Stories connect people to nature. This film may not follow our traditional path, but the themes presented by Princess Mononoke relate to similar stories across many cultures, and has inspired countless individuals to explore a respectful relationship with the natural world. We are excited to host you for this inspirational and beautiful movie.
