Critics often call Miyazaki the greatest animator of all time, but many people have still never heard of him. The Carolina Theatre is about to screen a series of films from Miyazaki’s production studio. It’s called the Studio Ghibli collection. Guest host Isaac-Davy Aronson is joined by Helen McCarthy, the author of "Hayao Miyazaki: Master of Japanese Animation" (Stone Bridge Press/1999).</p><p></p> Thu, 01 Nov 2012 17:03:00 +0000 Isaac-Davy Aronson & Shawn Wen 4126 at http://wunc.org
