  • The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness (2014 Ghibli documentary about, mostly, production of The Wind Rises, which follows Miyazaki about his daily life for months, showing many inside-Ghibli aspects, with long meditative shots of scenery and poking fun at some parts of Miyazaki like his constant doomsaying; it also shows how on earth Anno came to be involved as a voice actor, and some of Anno’s voice-acting in it.)
