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

Most intimate and human documentary of Mr. Miyazaki
20 December 2019 | by achigiSee all my reviews

Most intimate and human documentary of Mr. Miyazaki so far. Glimpses into his life as a director, a father and above all a human, with deep and conflicted feelings about the value of ones life and work, and of humanity.

Kaku Arakawa bravely captures the struggling human behind the living legend.
