  • Running time127 minutes
  • DirectorHayao Miyazaki

With THE WIND RISES, visionary director
 Miyazaki delivers his farewell masterpiece
– and once again defies the conventional limitations of animation.

The life of Jiro Horikoshi, the engineer who designed the Mitsubishi A6M Zero, is hardly traditional animated fare, especially when it comes from the dreamy minds at Studio Ghibli. But as films such as PERSEPOLIS have shown, animation can be a powerful tool, even with incredibly difficult and divisive subject matter. Young Horikoshi is fascinated by flight, and dedicates his life to building flying machines. But with Japan’s entry into World War II, he begins to feel a terrible guilt because of the machines he has devised and the deaths they have caused.

This profound and beautiful film deftly combines Ghibli’s mesmerising style with an achingly beautiful love story, and asks hard questions about humanity, creation and invention.
