The Works of Hayao Miyazaki. The Japanese Animation Master

Gael Berton


Book description

Through his creativity, technical wizardry and talent for storytelling, Hayao Miyazaki has left an indelible mark on Japanese animation and world cinema. The animation master has been able to create magical worlds for a children's story or a darker tale. But he has also known how to cast a cynical and innocent look on a world and its societies undergoing great changes and facing grim futures.

And yet, his work is often reduced, firstly, to his handful of feature-length movies created under the auspices of Studio Ghibli, but also to a superficial view due to cultural elements that are extremely difficult to grasp for anyone outside of Japan.

This work, which explains biographical elements and presents Studio Ghibli and the master's entourage, will give you a detailed analysis of Hayao Miyazaki's works, decrypting their themes and offering transversal keys to their understanding.
