For all your cult film, tv, cartoon, comic and video game needs

Studio Ghibli documentary The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness coming in January

The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness  is a fascinating, never-before-seen look inside the quirky and wonderful world of Studio Ghibli, creators of masterpieces like Princess MononokeMy Neighbor Totoro and the Oscar-winning Spirited Away.

The documentary gains all-access to the notoriously insular Studio Ghibli, director Mami Sunada follows the eminent director Hayao Miyazaki, producer Toshio Suzuki, and the elusive and influential “other director” Isao Takahata, for a year as the studio rushes to complete two films, Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises and  Takahata’s The Tale of the Princess Kaguya.

The result is a rare “fly on the wall” glimpse of the inner workings of one of the world’s most celebrated animation studios and a rare insight into the dreams, passion and singular dedication of these remarkable creators. Plus you get to meet Ushiko, the Studio Ghibli cat!
