My friend recently introduced me to this classic anime movie, Princess Mononoke, and I've been thinking about it ever since.  The movie has a lot of themes that are resonant today.  I liked that every character was morally grey.  Each believed what they were fighting for was the truth.

I created this with (what I think) are the film's three main color symbols:
Blue: water, the Nightwalker, spirits
Red/purple: the curse, Ashitaka and his deer
White: spirits, San and her wolves

This film doesn't have a happy ending and the drama doesn't resolve fully.  I wanted this piece to feel that bit of anxiety, like you don't know what's going to happen.

PLUS
I saw SO MANY similarities between this movie and the new Zelda game coming out :)
