Guillermo del Toro on Hayao Miyazaki's The Boy and the Heron | TIFF 2023

"Miyazaki, I think, is a guy who has exclusive technical finesse. But also a man who has decided to confide in us, his most intimate biography through his work. I'm sure that it's much easier to know him as a human being by watching his movies than by spending a long road trip. But that's the mark of a real auteur. "

Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water, Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio) joined us in the Official #TIFF23 Content Studio to talk all about Hayao Miyazaki's (Spirited Away, Howl's Moving Castle) legendary career as a filmmaker and his latest film, The Boy and the Heron.
