Mami Sunada ("Ending Note: Death of a Japanese Salaryman") is currently at work on the documentary "The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness".

Said project is chronicling the making of the next two animated features by Japan's world famous animation house Studio Ghibli.

Those projects? Hayao Miyazaki's "The Wind Rises" and Isao Takahata's "The Tale of Princess Kaguya". 'Wind' is slated to open next week in Japan, 'Kaguya' opens later this Fall.

Of the title, Sunada says: "I think that having a dream entails having a bit of madness, no matter what the profession. There are times when you will go to extremes, and times when you are feared by others for that."

The documentary will open in cinemas in Japan this Fall.
