The Wind Rises

12A

Last shown on 24 March 2019

From the legendary and highly celebrated Studio Ghibli and much revered director Hayao Miyazaki comes The Wind Rises.

Jiro (voiced by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) dreams of flying and designing beautiful airplanes, inspired by the famous Italian aeronautical designer Caproni (voiced by Stanley Tucci). Nearsighted from a young age and thus unable to become a pilot, Jiro joins a major Japanese engineering company in 1927 and becomes one of the world’s most innovative and accomplished airplane designers.

The film chronicles much of his life, depicting key historical events including The Great Kanto earthquake of1923, the Great Depression, the tuberculosis epidemic, and Japan’s plunge into war. Jiro meets and falls inlove with Nahoko (voiced by Emily Blunt) and grows and cherishes his friendship with his colleague Honjo(voiced by John Krasinski).
