Put on your masks, it’s a toxic jungle out there!
This time, Tobias, Austin, and Sully discuss Hayao Miyazaki’s sophomore feature, Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, an adaptation of his original manga work.
We discuss the film’s development, legacy, messages, the involvement of Evangelion‘s Hideaki Anno, and how a film about wearing masks and taking care of our fragile ecosystem is more relevant than ever in 2020.
Music featured in this episode comes from the Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind Original Soundtrack, composed by Joe Hisaishi.
