Hayao Miyazaki, the inaugural temporary exhibition of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, marks the first North American museum retrospective dedicated to the work of its namesake: the internationally celebrated artist and filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki.

Hayao Miyazaki features more than 300 objects, including original imageboards, character designs, storyboards, layouts, backgrounds, posters, and cels from Studio Ghibli’s archives - including pieces on public view outside of Japan for the first time.

The exhibition explores themes in his films including environmentalism, female empowerment, post-war society, and Japanese spirituality and culture.
