Hayao Miyazaki Comes Out of Retirement (Again)

December 11, 2016

Good news Studio Ghibli fans! Three years after announcing his retirement, Miyazaki-san has announced that he is coming back for “one last film.”  According to Anime News Network (ANN), the legendary anime filmmaker is set to direct BORO THE CATERPILLAR, a film that has reportedly been in development-hell for the past twenty years.  Miyazaki broke the news himself during a Japanese TV special about him, claiming that a short version of the film made for the Ghibli Museum left him dissatisfied.  As many fans know, this is not the first time the acclaimed director has come back for “one last film.”  In fact, he has been in and out of retirement since his film PRINCESS MONONOKE (1998), and has since taken the world by storm.  With his new shift towards manga illustration, is this truly Miyazaki-san’s last film as he claims?  BORO THE CATERPILLAR is anticipated to be completed sometime in 2019.

In the meantime, be sure to check out another Miyazaki film, OCEAN WAVES, opening January 17. The film has been remastered in 4K and we’ll be presenting the US premiere along with the North American premiere of a never before seen short film called GHIBLIES EPISODE 2.

ONE MORE TIME WITH FEELING

LOCATIONS: Angelika Dallas, Angelika Mosaic, Angelika Carmel
ONE NIGHT ONLY! Thursday, December 1 @ 7PM

GENRE: Documentary, Music

ONE MORE TIME WITH FEELING is the first opportunity anyone to hear Skeleton Tree, the sixteenth studio album from Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds. Originally a performance based concept, ONE MORE TIME WITH FEELING evolved into something much more significant as Andrew Dominik (KILLING THEM SOFTLY) delved into the tragic backdrop of the writing and recording of the album. Interwoven throughout the Bad Seeds’ filmed performance of the new album are interviews and footage shot by Dominik, accompanied by Cave’s narration and improvised rumination. Filmed in black-and-white and color, in both 3D and 2D, the result is fragile, raw and a true testament to an artist trying to find his way through the darkness.

The past and present are seamlessly woven together, crafting a tension-filled tale that deftly eschews sentimentality in favor of penetrating emotional insight and deeply affecting human relationships.
