NHK Two People ~ From Up on Poppy Hill (Japan DVD)
Original Price: ¥ 3990 (tax included)
Notes: Single-disc DVD edition. From ANN's description: This "making of" documentary follows both Hayao Miyazaki and his son Goro Miyazaki for the 10 months they worked together on the film From Up on Poppy Hill (コクリコ坂から Kokurikozaka kara?). Hayao Miyazaki planned and co-wrote the film, which Goro Miyazaki directed. The documentary discusses the conflict that previously arose between the two men when Goro directed Tales from Earthsea against Hayao's wishes (but at the insistence of producer Toshio Suzuki). The documentary explores how that conflict played a part in the two working together on Poppy Hill, especially regarding the creation of the main character Umi. It also examines the postponement of the film and the effect the 11 March 2011 Great Eastern Japan Earthquake (東日本大震災 Higashi Nihon Daishinsai?) disaster had on the film's production, and on the Miyazaki's father-and-son relationship.
