Summary
A 30th-century toxic jungle, a bathhouse for tired gods, a red-haired fish girl and a furry woodland spirit - what do these have in common? They all spring from the mind of Hayao Miyazaki, one of the greatest living animators, known worldwide for films such as 'My Neighbor Totoro', 'Princess Mononoke', 'Spirited Away', 'Howl's Moving Castle', and 'The Wind Rises'. Japanese culture and animation scholar Susan Napier explores the life and art of this extraordinary Japanese filmmaker to provide a definitive account of his oeuvre. Napier insightfully illuminates the multiple themes crisscrossing his work, from empowered women to environmental nightmares to utopian dreams, creating an unforgettable portrait of a man whose art challenged Hollywood dominance and ushered in a new chapter of global popular culture
