Ghibli's Suzuki: 'Studio Is Currently Open, But Not Working on Anything'
Studio Ghibli's former president Toshio Suzuki revealed in a talk show for the Hana to Alice Satsujin Jiken (The Case of Hana & Alice) film that the studio is currently open, but is not doing anything.
He commented on the status of the studio, saying, "...We're worrying about what we should make next... When you think about the current state of the world, it's hard to know what to make. It makes me remember that movies aren't something to make, but something to watch. Watching and responding to a film is fun. However, as I think this, the thought of 'What are you going to do!?' keeps chasing after me. Maybe a theme [for a film] is somewhere around me."
In the same talk show, The Case of Hana & Alice director Shunji Iwai admitted that the film was still incomplete, to which Suzuki joked, "Well, shouldn't you just go home then?"
The Case of Hana & Alice film is scheduled to open in Japanese theaters on February 12.
