Review of “My Teacher and I” (1990)


Miyazaki Hayao (writer).

Read in Starting Point.

Miyazaki’s relationship with a Mr. Satō, who had been his art teacher in middle school but had since resigned to do oil paintings while also directing a kindergarten.

A rare look into Miyazaki’s own childhood.
