Transcript of Mononoke Hime (Princess Mononoke)

Respect For Nature
Nature vs technology
An example of nature vs technology is that the forest gods were nature, and the villagers were technology and they used their variety of weapons, compared to the gods using their natural power. Light and dark were represented in the film in the theme of nature vs technology as the forest Gods were using their powers, in light themed powers and dark themed powers too. Symbolism was also used during the film on nature vs technology as when Ashitaka was corrupted with a curse on his arm, it was dark and represented hatred growing on him. A moral was shown in this movie, also in the theme of nature vs technology, was that in most cases, nature will be better in doing tasks than technology would.

This is also connected to the Japanese culture as the Japanese believed that their natural strengths were stronger than the ties between the outsiders strength between their technology
Hatred / Holding Grudges
Hatred/ Holding grudges were shown strongly in the film as early in the film, when one of the boar gods attacked Irontown and was killed by Ashitaka. As the boar god was killed, an iron ball came out of it, that corrupted the boar god, that symbolized hatred. Light and dark was represented in this film by showing that the boar had a dark aura around it. Relative size was shown in this film as well as the humans were not nearly as big as the gods.

This is connected to the culture of Japan as Japan still holds grudges from America for bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Japanese then placed a memorial park for the people that were killed in the bombing
Response To Japanese Media:
Mononoke Hime (Princess Mononoke)

During the movie, respect for nature was a strong point. An example would be a boar from a boar clan lead by the blind boar god, Okkoto, that decided to attack Irontown (nearby village) because the humans were consuming resources from the forest, showing that the boar god didn't want his home (The forest) to be consumed by the humans and slowly decaying the forest from resources. He represented being a God as he was very large in size. In one of the scenes, the boar god mentioned earlier (Nago) attacked the village early in the film and entered the scene by showing a dark presence that has been disfigured in an evil way. A moral they show in the movie is that they were teaching that people whould respect nature as like it is part of them.

This is connected to the Japanese culture as in Japan, they have a lot of parks and natural attractions over there, such as mount Fujisan, a large volcano that has a god-like presence to the Japanese
