Watch the teaser trailer for this unusual project. “Wind Princess” is an independent non-profit short film, entirely self-funded and made in Brazil as a tribute to the great artist Hayao Miyazaki and his classic 1984 anime film “Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind”.

A Brazilian filmmaking team, made up of friends and led by director Chris Tex has been working on this project for almost four years, fueled only by their love for the source material.

The film looks amazing and it will be released online free of charge, as the team’s aim is to pay homage to Mr. Miyazaki and the team at Studio Ghibli.

The trailer includes a behind-the-scenes featurette where the director talks about his drive, the making of the film, and his dream to donate all the costumes and props (such as the glider, gun, etc) to the Ghibli Museum in Tokyo, Japan, as a token of appreciation and also as a testament to the great influence Miyazaki has on Brazilian fans.

On paper I am an Italian living in London, in reality I was born and bread in a popcorn bucket. I've loved cinema since I was a little child and I’ve always had a passion and interest for Asian (especially Japanese) pop culture, food and traditions, but on the cinema side, my big, first love is Hong Kong Cinema. Then - by a sort of osmosis - I have expanded my love and appreciation to the cinematography of other Asian countries. I like action, heroic bloodshed, wu-xia, Shaw Bros (even if it’s not my specialty), Anime, and also more auteur-ish movies. Anything that is good, really, but I am allergic to rom-com (unless it’s a HK rom-com, possibly featuring Andy Lau in his 20s)"
