Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki Documentary to Screen in December

 

Last month, GKIDS announced plans to bring 2016 documentary Never-Ending Man: Hayao Miyazaki to cinemas in the United States. Now we have concrete dates beyond the winter release window, with the feature lined up for nationwide screenings this December. 

 

Over 500 U.S. cinemas will screen the film with English subtitles on December 13 at 7:30pm local time and December 18 at 7:30pm. You can check local listings for showings near you on the official website. 

 

 

Synopsis:

In 2013, Academy Award®-winning film director and animator Hayao Miyazaki suddenly announced his retirement at the age of 72. But he can’t shake his burning desire to create. After an encounter with young CGI animators, Miyazaki embarks on a new project to utilize CGI for the first time ever. 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? This program goes behind the scenes over two years as Miyazaki overcomes struggles to create his short film Boro the Caterpillar using CGI.
