Aroview: In a strange post-apocalyptic world, a young girl has to save her people from the huge insects that threaten them.

An extraordinary early Miyazaki, based on his own manga, featuring his by now familiar tropes - a tough young heroine, extraordinary flying sequences and strong ecological themes, set in the most fantastic and fully realised of any of his worlds. A spectacular sci-fi experience, if without some of the emotional complexity of his later work.

Optional English voiceover features Alison Lohman, Patrick Stewart and Uma Thurman.
