Miyazaki's 'Princess Mononoke' returns to the big screen for a 20th-anniversary screening

On its 20th anniversary, Fathom Events presents the cult favorite animated film Princess Mononoke on the big screen. In Mononoke, Hayao Miyazaki takes as his subject nothing less than a battle between humans and gods, pitting all the beasts and spirits of the forest against the incursions of industry. Personifying the forest is San, a girl raised by wolves who fights to defend the animals and the gods. The film’s first vision of her – riding hell-for-leather on the back of a giant wolf, clad in furs and teeth, mouth smeared with blood – is as iconic a film entrance as you’re likely ever to see. For anime fans who’ve been restricted to viewing Mononoke’s epic sweep on TV or computer screens, it’s a not-to-be-missed opportunity. And fans of live-action film violence may be amazed to learn how brutal a blood-spurting fight scene can be when rendered with pencil and brush.
