Hayao Miyazaki: The Kingdom of dreams and madness
MetadataShow full item record
Hayao Miyazaki is a versatile and multifaceted artist; he was awarded many prestigious prizes for the screenplays and the direction of his ﬁlms, such as the Berlin Golden Bear at the International Film Festival in 2002, the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature in 2003 and the Golden Lion for Career Achievement at the Venice Film Festival in 2005. Miyazaki always created his movies for younger generations and wrote stories about them. His ﬁlms are often a journey in the world of children through an honest and accurate look at the sensitivity of the little ones. The Japanese author has a rare delicate way to describe those years, whose enchantment has been forgotten by many adults. Miyazaki’s works have always been conceived for an all-encompassing audience, both in culture and in age, but he focused particularly on younger viewers, who could identify with the protagonists: the Japanese director has never concealed his love for younger generations, so he wrote and drew for them and about them.
