Synopsis

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

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
