Hayao Miyazaki Receives Lifetime Achievement Award at Venice Film Festival

Studio Ghibli’s Hayao Miyazaki received a lifetime achievement award at the Venice Film Festival on Friday, September 9. In statements to the press, he stated that he was unconcerned at the relatively poor performance of his movies outside of Japan and claimed he nearly skipped the award ceremony, feeling that lifetime achievement awards are for “old retired people.”

Nausicaa.net links to a video clip (Windows Media or RealPlayer) of Miyazaki receiving the award.
