Isao Takahata's HORUS, PRINCE OF THE SUN
From the creator of Grave of the Fireflies comes this delicately beautiful motion picture where now-legendary animators Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata (later founders of Ghibli Studios) first worked together. Horus, a young boy in the European Iron Age, recovers the Sword of the Sun from the rock giant Moog and learns from his dying father that he must return to his ancestral territory. In the process, he defends a village from the attacks of Grundewald, a warlord/ice demon and befriends the enigmatic Hilda, a lonely and beautiful girl who sings haunting songs to conceal her terrible secret.
