About Ghibli
It was Studio Ghibli that opened the world to the universe of Japanese animation. The films of Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata have become classics of world cinema, equally close to cinephiles and to common broad audience. While Hayao Miyazaki masterfully reveals the world of fairy tales and fantastic stories, Isao Takahata devoted most of his films to Japanese everyday life, woven from myths and spirits. The films by the Ghibli Studio masters have become a great decoding ground for shaping of the unusual and attractive world of Japan.
