Miyazaki and Other Toons

The program «Miyazaki and Other Toons» is traditionally composed of feature-length animation for children, teenagers and the youth. Despite being very different they all have a common theme. In his own way every author examines the correlation of the ordinary and the transcendent in life. This is one of the most urgent topics in Japanese anime and in each movie it manifests itself differently: in some cases a most mundane drama underlies a mystic story; in another the nature of talent and creative discoveries are discussed; in still another one the viewer will be offered a fairy-tale in which everyday life and fantasy are intertwined in most whimsical ways...
