Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki 終わらない人 宮崎駿 (Owaranai Hito Miyazaki Hayao) is a documentary about Hayao Miyazaki and his never-ending work ethic directed by Kaku Arakawa.
I was able to watch a screening of the movie at Anime NYC. Hayao Miyazaki has won many awards for his films because of his love and dedication to his work. He is an extraordinary filmmaker, animator, screenwriter, and manga artist. He is to me one of Japan’s greatest animation director’s of all time. It was an interesting documentary and even more amazing watching him battling with himself for coming out of retirement.
The world lost a great member of Studio Ghibli, Isao Takahata who passed away April 5, 2018, from lung cancer. The panel I went to was hosted by AWO (Anime World Order) where they discussed his life and his greatest achievements. This was an interesting and informative panel, the audience was able to see clips of some of his work like his very long documentary on bridges. The guest speaker explained how his goal was to make people laugh with his skills, I was able to learn some of Takahata’s greatest achievements there was so much to learn about his life that I did not know before.
As some of you may know, our team attended AnimeNext in Atlantic City, New Jersey early this month. One of our favorite events to attend when going to any anime convention is the Masquerade.
