For an exhibit on cinematic practical effects at Tokyo's Museum of Contemporary Art, Neon Genesis Evangelion director Hideaki Anno and Studio Ghibli have teamed up for a live-action featurette based on Hayao Miyazaki's post-apocalyptic cartoon classic Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.

This short — Giant God Warrior Appears in Tokyo — stars the world-ending monsters from the beginning of the film with a nifty twist. These bio-weapons are done up in the live-action tokusatsu style, so — according to Anno — expect tiny doomed cities and no CG shots (and hopefully the occasional rubber suit). The exhibit runs until October 8, so there's no need to stampede with ohmu-like alacrity if you're in the neighborhood.
