Regular readers probably remember my posts about Hayao Miyazaki and his movies. Just found out that he has received this year's lifetime achievement award at the Venice Film Festival. Also, he has given an interview to The Guardian. Seems this is the first time in at least 10 years that he has consented to give an interview. Nothing too interesting for people who are not interested in him already, but a good read for fans if only because of the rareness of opportunity. Read the interview here.
Found the story, almost simultaneously, through Slashdot and Aint it Cool.
