Hayao Miyazaki: 10 Years with the Master

HAYAO MIYAZAKI: 10 YEARS WITH THE MASTER is an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the genius of Japan's foremost living film director.

For a decade, Miyazaki allowed a single documentary filmmaker to shadow him at work, following the master as he works on Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea, From Up On Poppy Hill and The Wind Rises.
