Princess Mononoke

Humans are polluting the earth, destroying the environment and exhausting its natural resources.  This is a fact, and most of us have grown used to it.

But for Ashitaka, San, and the people of Irontown, this fact is a living, daily reality.  Ashitaka is banished from his village after a battle with demon leaves him horribly scarred.  He finds the people of Irontown and the spirits of the Forest locked in battle.  Irontown, led by Lady Eboshi, is destroying the Forest.  The Forest spirits strike back and kill several Irontown inhabitants.

In the center of the battle is San — a fearless, beautiful girl abandoned by humans and raised by wolves.  When the two worlds collide, she fears that she fits into neither.

Directed by the legendary Hayao Miyazaki.  Trailer here:
