Storyline

A handheld camera follows Miyazaki Hayao, the powerhouse behind the famous Ghibli Studio, and his colleagues immediately before and after his retirement and captures his transition from full-time and full-length features to other projects and how the man envisions the transition from sketching by hand to CGI animation. In the process the camera captures the man's fastidious attitude, work ethic and thoughts on work and immortality. Written by aghaemi

Interesting home-made style doc
19 December 2018 | by paulhenrybSee all my reviews

Not what I was expecting, but still an interesting, brief look into a year (or 2) of the life of a great artist. I thought the home-video, camcorder effect would be temporary to kind of set up the intimate nature of the film, but, no, that's the whole movie.
