Summary, etc.:
The birthplace of classic anime films such as Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke, Studio Ghibli occupies a near legendary position in film history. Granted unfettered access to the notoriously insular studio, this revealing documentary follows the three men who are the lifeblood of Ghibli -- producer Toshio Suzuki, the elusive and influential "other director" Isao Takahata, and Miyazaki -- over the course of 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 an insight into the dreams, passion and singular dedication of these remarkable creators.
