Hayao Miyazaki Interview at UC Berkeley Center for Japanese Studies

 I had the pleasure of attending this lecture a few years ago. My favorite part of the interview was when Miyazaki talked about his house and how it's located next to a river that frequently floods. He said that he has enough money to move the house higher up the mountain but instead would rather keep it where it is so that when the river floods he'll experience the disaster with his fellow neighbors. I also liked his thoughts on chaos and how he uses it as a theme in many of his films.

Miyazaki is also featured on CNN's 'Talk Asia' this week. He talks about Studio Ghibli and the recent earthquake that rocked Japan last March. If I can find the full length version of the interview aired last night I'll post it up. Below is a link to the story and a couple of clips from the interview.
