Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki

February 10 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

$7

In 2013, beloved film director and animator Hayao Miyazaki (SPIRITED AWAY, MY NEIGHBOR TOTORO) suddenly announced his retirement at the age of 72. But he couldn’t shake his burning desire to create. After an encounter with young CGI animators, Miyazaki embarked on a new endeavor, his first project ever to utilize CGI. But the artist, who had been adamant about hand-drawn animation, confronted many challenges. The film even faces the danger of being cancelled. Can an old master who thinks he’s past his prime shine once again? This program goes behind the scenes over two years as Miyazaki overcomes struggles to create his short film using CGI.

Introduction by filmmaker Clarence Green.
