Win NEVER-ENDING MAN: HAYAO MIYAZAKI Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack!
Shout! Factory is offering SciFi Japan readers a chance to win a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack of the documentary NEVER-ENDING MAN: HAYAO MIYAZAKI (終わらない人 宮崎駿, Owaranai Hito Miyazaki Hayao, 2016). The film offers a new look at Academy Award-winning film director and Studio Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki who, after an encounter with young CGI animators, Miyazaki embarks on a new project using these techniques to create a new short film, BORO THE CATERPILLAR (毛虫のボロ, Kemushi no Boro, 2018). But the artist, who has been adamant about hand-drawn animation, confronts many challenges that threaten to cancel the film. Can an old master who thinks he’s past his prime shine once again? Shot over two years, NEVER-ENDING MAN: HAYAO MIYAZAKI provides a unique, fascinating glimpse into the mind and creative process of one of animation’s most iconic storytellers.
NEVER-ENDING MAN: HAYAO MIYAZAKI will be available on Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack (SLP: $22.97) on April 30 from GKIDS and Shout! Factory. This release contains two different versions: a 70-minute version in Japanese with English subtitles, and an alternate cut; a 48-minute broadcast version with English narration which includes footage not included in the 70-minute version.
