Isao Takahata and His Tale of the Princess Kaguya

Directed by Akira Miki, Hidekazu Sato

A fascinating and insightful behind-the-scenes glimpse at the creation of Isao Takahata’s THE TALE OF THE PRINCESS KAGUYA.

With complete access to the film’s production, we are privileged to witness Takahata as he uncovers the process by which he came to take on the project, the recording of the character voices, the establishment of ‘Ghibli Studio 7' (a facility set up to meet the demands of a new type of animation that does not fit easily into the traditional Ghibli animation process), the recording of the music with legendary composer Joe Hisaishi, and even a rare meeting between Takahata and Hayao Miyazaki during the production of The Wind Rises.

Year of Production: 2015 • Runtime: 82 mins • Languages: Japanese • Subtitles: English
