The Tale of Studio Ghibli: Celebrating the Genius of Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata will screen on select screens in capital cities across the country for a limited two-week season. The showcase will feature four classic films from the two animators – two recent works in The Tale of the Princess Kaguya and The Wind Rises, as well as two films made 25 years earlier, My Neighbour Totoro and Grave of the Fireflies.

The showcase will also include two feature-length documentaries that offer insight into the making of their latest films, with The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness and Isao Takahata and his Tale of the Princess Kaguya.

The films will be running for a limited time from October. Visit madman.com.au for details.
