Yume to kyoki no okoku / The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness

YUME TO KYOKI NO OKOKU (THE KINGDOM OF DREAMS AND MADNESS)

A theatrical documentary feature about the famed animation studio Ghibli. With near-unfettered access inside the studio, Mami Sunada follows the key personnel at Ghibli (director Hayao Miyazaki, producer Toshio Suzuki and the elusive “other” director, Isao Takahata) over the course of approximately one year as the studio rushes to complete their two highly anticipated new films, Miyazaki’s The Wind Rises and Takahata’s The Tale of Princess Kaguya. The result is a rare glimpse into the inner workings of one of the most celebrated animation studios in the world, and a portrait of their dreams, passion and dedication that borders on madness.


BIOGRAPHY

Mami Sunada, born in 1978, studied documentary filmmaking while at Keio University before apprenticing as a director’s assistant under Hirokazu Kore-eda and others. Her directorial debut, Death of a Japanese Salesman (2011), a documentary about her father’s last days after being diagnosed with cancer, garnered numerous first-time director awards. The film also surpassed 100 million yen at the box office, exceptional for a documentary. The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness is her second feature film.
