Studio Ghibli Documentary's Digest Video Previews Fall Film

posted on by Sarah Nelkin
"Kingdom of Dreams & Madness" to open in Japanese theaters on November 16

A digest video began streaming for Yume to Kyōki no Ōkoku (The Kingdom of Dreams & Madness), the documentary film about the acclaimed anime company Studio Ghibli. The documentary follows Ghibli director Hayao Miyazaki as he works on the Kaze Tachinu (The Wind Rises) film, director Isao Takahata as he works on the film Kaguya-hime no Monogatari (The Tale of Princess Kaguya), and producer Toshio Suzuki as he works on both projects.

The footage in the video shows Hayao Miyazaki and the other staff members at Studio Ghibli performing morning work-outs before starting work. When an artist at the studio is asked about Miyazaki, she replies, “He's a genius.” The video follows Miyazaki as he works on the film The Wind Rises. The video also shows Neon Genesis Evangelion director Hideaki Anno auditioning for the role of the film's main character after Miyazaki suggested him during the casting meeting.

The film will open in Japanese theaters on November 16.
