Renowned animator and founder of Studio Ghibli Hayao Miyazaki’s final film is a whimsical ride through the life of the Japanese aeronautical engineer Jiro Horikoshi. Beautifully animated with a stirring classical soundtrack, the film is a chronicle of Jiro’s life and dreams. From his childhood fantasies to his determined years of study, it culminates in his pioneering designs of the legendary Japanese fighter planes used in WWI and WWII. Touching on significant moments in Japan’s history such as the Great Kanto earthquake, the Depression and the onset of war, while gently weaving in his romance with his wife, this is an affectionate ode to a Japanese icon and the profession of aeronautical engineering.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
