Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki – Question & Answer


Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki Question & Answer May 8th, 2019 Museum of Science, Boston Co-presented with the Japan Society of Boston Film director and animator Hayao Miyazaki suddenly announced his retirement in 2013 at the age of 72. But he couldn’t shake his burning desire to create. After an encounter with young CGI animators, Miyazaki embarked on a new endeavor—his first project ever to utilize CGI. But the artist, who had been adamant about hand-drawn animation, confronted many challenges. The film even faces the danger of being canceled. Can an old master who thinks he’s past his prime shine once again? This program goes behind the scenes over two years as Miyazaki overcomes struggles to create his short film using CGI. Join us for a one-night only screening of this incredible, intimate look into the process of a cinematic legend. We will be joined by Susan Napier, Professor in the Japanese program at Tufts University, and author of the recent book Miyazakiworld: A Life in Art. This program is free thanks to the generosity of the Lowell Institute
