The Wind Rises (2013)

Miyazaki's most recent feature-length film is a fictionalized biopic of Jiro Horikoshi, the brilliant aeronautical engineer who designed the famous Mitsubishi Zero fighter plane, the most advanced airplane in the world at the time. Jiro’s work is driven by a love of the beauty of flight, while Miyazaki examines how a creator's love of his creation can sometimes blind him to the seeds of destruction it contains.
