Miyazaki’s movies are always introducing heterotopias hosting imaginaries (I use the word imaginary here in an Edouard Glissant meaning) only accessible to people who did not give up their interpretation of the world as children. His movies fits absolutely with Foucault’s own definition of a certain kind of heterotopias, the parents’ bed which becomes a ship for example, but even more the most remote point of the garden, the one which remains unknown and therefore entertain all kind of fantasies and materialization of fear. Each of those movies are a journey following Lewis Caroll’s rabbit and dramatizes worlds where evil comes from a lack of imaginaries.
