Film Club - The Wind Rises

The last in our Studio Ghibli season and perhaps the last film by one of the studio's founders Hayao Miyazaki, The Wind Rises is a fictionalised biopic of Jiro Horikoshi (1903–1982), designer of fighter aircraft used by the Empire of Japan during WW II.

'Hayao Miyazaki's 11th and final film is a masterful animation that's also deeply personal' 5/5 thetelegraph.co.uk
