Studio Ghibli Documentary “The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness” Streams on Netflix
DIRECTED BY: Mami Sunada
FEATURING: Hayao Miyazaki, Toshio Suzuki, Isao Takahata
SYNOPSIS: Granted near-unfettered access to the notoriously insular Studio Ghibli, director Mami Sunada follows the three men who are the lifeblood of Ghibli – the eminent director Hayao Miyazaki, the producer Toshio Suzuki, and the elusive and influential “other director” Isao Takahata – over the course of a year as the studio rushes to complete two films, Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises and Takahata’s The Tale of The Princess Kaguya. The result is a rare “fly on the wall” glimpse of the inner workings of one of the world’s most celebrated animation studios, and an insight into the dreams, passion and singular dedication of these remarkable creators. Plus you get to meet Ushiko, the adorable Studio Ghibli cat!
