How Nausicaa teaches us to empathize with nature

Tolles essay über das Worldbuilding und die Macht der Empathie in Miyazaki’s ‚Nausicäa & The Valley of the Winds‘.


Durch diese Zutaten gelingt es dem Film wie kein zweiter seine Botschaft zum Umgang mit der Welt um uns herum zu vermitteln. Ein Meisterwerk auch nach 28 Jahren.

Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind is not only a powerful piece of art — with an impeccable worldbuilding — by director Hayao Miyazaki (via the fabled Studio Ghibli) but also one with a message centered around empathy. How can a movie like this (or like Pixar’s Wall-E!) teach us how to be more empathic ourselves? How can art convey a worldview? One that might end up saving us all.
