If you’re a fan of Hayao Miyazaki, you’ve probably at least heard of the documentary Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki. Back in 2016, the film debuted in Japan and has since been available online with English subtitles. If you haven’t seen the documentary yet, or you want to see it in a theater and live in the United States, you’re in luck. This winter, you’ll be able to see the film.

In 2013, film director and animator Hayao Miyazaki suddenly announced his retirement at the age of 72. But he couldn’t shake his burning desire to create. After an encounter with young CGI animators, Miyazaki embarked on a new endeavor, his first project ever to utilize CGI. But the artist, who had been adamant about hand-drawn animation, confronted many challenges. The film even faces the danger of being cancelled. Can an old master who thinks he’s past his prime shine once again? This program goes behind the scenes over two years as Miyazaki overcomes struggles to create his short film using CGI.
