  • Delmonico Books recently published a comprehensive look at Hayao Miyazaki's iconic films.
  • The book is a part of a larger exhibition on Studio Ghibli that has recently opened at Los Angeles' Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, a space that is deemed as the largest institution dedicated to the history, science, and cultural impact of filmmaking.
  • Presented by Academy Museum curator, Jessica Niebel, the Miyazaki exhibition presents 300 artworks that span concept sketches and animation cels that have rarely been seen outside Japan.
  • Additionally, there are a number of intriguing installations, such as an ethereal glowing sculpture that mimics many of the portal-like occurrences in Miyazaki's films.
  • Contrary to Disney, which "tends to be sort of binary: good or evil," according to Niebel, Ghibli films contain "a lot of ambiguity"?'good people suffer," she added.
