The first commemorative exhibition showcasing the accomplishments of director Isao Takahata
“Takahata Isao: A Legend in Japanese Animation” will be held from July 2 to October 6, 2019 at the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo. This is the first commemorative exhibition showcasing the accomplishments of director Isao Takahata (1935-2018), Japan’s leading animation director.
Takahata won acclaim as the director of several cartoon TV series before moving on to film at Studio Ghibli, which he co-founded with Hayao Miyazaki. He directed “Grave of the Fireflies” and other popular works for the studio.
