Hayao Miyazaki, the Academy Award-winning Japanese filmmaker, best known for co-founding Studio Ghibli and being the mastermind behind classics like My Neighbor Totoro (1988), Kiki’s Delivery Service (1989), and Howl’s Moving Castle (2004), announced his retirement in 2013, at the age of 72.
This Japanese documentary follows his life over a two-year span as he tries to find a new calling and deal with his burning desire to create, while also challenging himself to create a short film using CGI, a technology that Miyazaki has never tackled before.
