Imaginative Hayao Miyazaki’s Concept of Human Condition






The sheer variety of director Hayao Miyazaki‘s Studio Ghibli films makes it easy to understand what the auteur cares about, mostly because no matter what crazy allegorical universe his creations live in, they still embody humanity’s plight.

Laura Fuentes has created a video essay that analyzes Miyazaki’s “music, detailed animations, landscapes” and silence to figure out his stance towards children (and the rest of us) as they make their way through the world.


The animator finds humanity in every detail of his wild worlds.

There is an inherent trust of benign nature, a fear of the creations of man, and an inkling of magic in the everyday. To understand Miyazaki’s animations is to understand his philosophy towards how life should be lived.
