Studio Ghibli is a name synonymous with exciting animation, instantly recognisable from mascot Totoro from one of their early outputs through to their beautiful films from the 21st century, such as Spirited Away and Ponyo. In this documentary, we follow the working life of legendary filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki and those closest to him as he prepares to release his final film, The Wind Rises. At the same time, Isao Takahata – Miyazaki’s mentor, friend and rival – is laboriously working on The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, leaving producer Toshio Suzuki to handle the simultaneous release of both films. This documentary gives a unique behind-the-scenes viewpoint into the craft, energy and industry that goes into the creative process.
