OSU Libraries presents a special film screening of Kaku Arakawa's Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki (Owaranai Hito - Hayao Miyazaki).
This intimate, revealing NHK documentary portrait of Hayao Miyazaki (My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away) follows the tireless animator from his announced semi-retirement in 2013 through his decision to develop Boro the Caterpillar, an animated short originally intended for the Ghibli Museum, into his final feature film. An enthusiastic talker full of self-deprecating witticisms and strong opinions about nearly everything, Miyazaki proves himself to be an endlessly fascinating subject, offering generous access to his creative process and life philosophy as he struggles to work out ideas while using CGI for the first time.
Free and Open to the Public
