Interesting documentary on manga

Postby Valatunda » Sun 03.18.2007 7:50 am

I saw this when it was first shown early last year. It is from a series in the U.K called The South Bank Show.

Here is just a bit of information taken from the page of the video.

Since the Second World War, Manga has provided the foundation for popular culture in Japan -- not just in publishing but on television, in computer games and advertising. It has also inspired a hugely diverse and rich film animation industry.

The South Bank Show travels to Japan to examine this unique tradition of pictorial storytelling, talking to manga artists and to filmmakers such as Oscar winner Hayao Miyazaki, whose work has had a profound influence from Hollywood to Britain.

Please note that the video's length is 48:04.
