“Beautifully constructed and painstakingly written, this is about as close to a perfect animated epic as you're likely to get.” - Melanie McFarland, Seattle Times

Tuesday, February 27, 6:00 p.m. | During the 14th century, the once serene rapport between humans, animals, and gods starts to disintegrate. Prince Ashitaka contracts a malady from an animal assault and embarks on a quest for a remedy from the deer-like deity Shishigami. Throughout his journey, he witnesses humanity laying waste to the land, provoking the ire of the wolf god Moro and her human ally, Princess Mononoke. His endeavors to mediate peace between her and the human populace only creates further discord.
