Come for a screening of Nausicaä, along with a performance by Kaki King at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented in partnership with Prospect Park Alliance.
Roger Ebert once called Hayao Miyazaki and his Studio Ghibli collaborator Isao Takahata, of Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke fame, “arguably the greatest directors of animation in the world.” Considered by some their finest film, Nausicaä, the 1984 masterpiece that launched the studio, is a visually dazzling post-apocalyptic epic about a warrior princess and her fight to save a toxic jungle and its giant mutant insects from an ancient weapon of unimaginable power. Think Star Wars meets Avatar, but smarter and more fun than both. The otherworldly Brooklyn-based guitarist Kaki King sets the stage for the fantasy.
Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.
