Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki

Rated NR 85 min. 2018

Don't miss Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki in a premiere event from Fathom Events and GKIDS. In 2013, film director and animator Hayao Miyazaki suddenly announced his retirement 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 cancelled. 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.
