THE WIND RISES

DIRECTOR: Hayao Miyazaki - JAPAN

Miyazaki, co-founder of the legendary Studio Ghibli, eschewing his typically fictional characters ensconced in a fantasy world, instead brings to life the story of Jiro Horikoshi, visionary designer of one of history’s most beautiful airplanes—the prototype for the Zero WWII fighter. Adapted from Miyazaki’s own serialized manga, which was itself inspired by Tatsuo Hori’s 1937 story of the same name, this epic tale of love, invention, and hope spans decades, sweeping through great historical moments of 20th-century Japan. In what he has said is his last film, the winner of dozens of international awards, Miyazaki dazzles with his usual beautifully rendered flourishes, but this time exploring a grounded, evolved, and sophisticated nostalgia that is a fitting final celebration of art, science, and the impulse to create. (126 mins.)

Filmography: Castle in the Sky (86), Princess Mononoke (97), Spirited Away (01), Howl’s Moving Castle (04), Ponyo (08).

Sponsored by the Consular Office of Japan in Portland.
