Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki

From Kottke:

•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

After he retired from making feature length films in 2013, legendary animator Hayao Miyazaki started work on a short film using CGI animation techniques, which he had never worked with before.

For two years a film crew followed him and his progress, resulting in a feature-length documentary, "Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki" — you can watch the trailer above.

"I'm a weak used-up old man. It'd be a ridiculous mistake to think I'll ever regain my youth. But what do I do with the time I have left?"

The documentary was shown on Japanese TV in 2016 and will make its American debut next month on December 13 and 18.

Possible spoiler alert for the documentary: Miyazaki unretired last year and is turning that short film into a full-length feature.
