Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind
Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (風の谷のナウシカ, Kaze no tani no Naushika) - A 1984 film by Japanese writer, illustrator, and filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, based on his manga of the same name. The movie has environmentalist undertones and was presented by the World Wide Fund for Nature when it was released in 1984. Nausicaä is ranked as one of the 50 greatest science fiction films by the Internet Movie Database. While created before Studio Ghibli was founded, the film is considered by some to be the studio's first film because of the involvement of Studio Ghibli's Hayao Miyazaki, Isao Takahata and Toshio Suzuki. It is often included as part of the Studio's works, including the Studio Ghibli Collection of DVDs.

The movie won the Animage Anime Grand Prix prize in 1984.
