Wandering Star #1 - Anima Mundi
Fantasy & Reality
We introduce stories that submerge us in a magical vision of life and nature. Which describes the world better? The poetic vision of the old tales or modern science? We discover ‘Ponyo’, ‘Princess Mononoke’, or ‘Spirited Away’, all extraordinary films through which we experience the magical Japanese vision of nature and the beings (Kami) that inh abit it. The films of Hayao Miyazaki bring the magical and spiritual into the real world for our delight.
