miyazaki, hayao

In 2002 international acclaim came at last for Japanese animation director Hayao Miyazaki. His Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi (released in English as Spirited Away) captured the top prize at the Berlin International Film Festival, won best Asian film at the Hong Kong Film Awards, and generated considerable Oscar buzz after its October release in the U.S. In his native Japan it had already won best picture at the Japanese Academy Awards and replaced Titanic as the top grossing film in Japanese history.
