Synopsis

North American Premiere

In 2013, Oscar winning director Hayao Miyazaki took the world of animation by surprise, as he announced that he would be retiring at 72. However, his creative whims aren’t ready to let go just yet. After meeting with a group of young animators specializing in computer graphics, he decided to explore a new means of expression by directing a short based on 3D animation techniques. Will this new creation change the future of the Japanese world of animation? This documentary follows Miyazaki using 3D animation for the very first time, revealing the creatively complex man behind the work. Following Miyazaki’s career since 2006, director Kaku Arakawa paints a sober and fascinating portrait of this icon of the animation world.
