Out of the wide variety of films from the Sydney Film Festival, we have picked out two documentaries that are about amazing films and the creators behind them.
What happened to the legendary film Dune? The cult movie director behind, The Holy Mountain and El Topo, Alejandro Jodorowsky was working on Frank Herbert’s science-fiction novel Dune back in the 70′s with amazing creatives onboard, from illustrator Moebius to Salvador Dalí. The Dune’s story boards and concept drawings seemed to have inspired the sci-fi genre for decades despite it never been made.
A documentary that follows the award winning animation studio, Studio Ghibli. The driving force of the studio, Hayao Miyazaki director of the beautiful worlds of Princess Monokoke, Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle, works on his latest masterpieces and maybe his last, The Wind Rises. The creations, the studio has the making have been filling the hearts of many with sentimentally for the decades. This could be because each frame is carefully drawn by hand and the studio sticking to it’s traditions.
