Hayao Miyazaki: The Wind Rises (Trailer)

by

A new Studio Ghibli film is always a cause for celebration, particularly when it’s made by co-founder and master animator, Hayao Miyazaki.

His latest film, The Wind Rises, is something of a departure, in that it’s a historical drama with no hint of the fantastical overtones you might associate with him.

The Wind Rises is about aircraft designer Jiro Horikoshi, covering a decade of his life through the Kanto Earthquake and World War Two, and all the turbulence and tragedy that went with it.
