The Kingdom of Dreams & Madness
Documentary about Studio Ghibli to come to Japanese cinemas this fall
The film will follow Ghibli’s founder, celebrated anime director Hayao Miyazaki as he works on his next film, Kaze Tachinu (The Wind Rises),
as well as director Isao Takahata and his new work Kaguya-hime no Monogatari (The Tale of Princess Kaguya).
Producer Toshio Suzuki is also a subject of the documentary as he works on both projects.
The director Mami Sunada explained why she put the word “Madness” in the title of the film:
I think that having a dream entails having a bit of madness, no matter what the profession. There are times when you will go to extremes, and times when you are feared by others for that.
