Studio Ghibli and World of Hayao Miyazaki
Author-director-animator Hayao Miyazaki is a 'renaissance man' who continues to tackle new themes and provocative projects with the spirit of a true artist in the most classic sense. His creative expression brings forth a cinematic vision like no other that strongly moves the hearts and souls of audiences. The interactions between nature and mankind play pivotal roles in his works. The wondrous imageries he creates often project nostalgic undertones, and his stories unfold in surprising and thought provoking manners, but most importantly his films never fail to be entertaining.
