Catch it at the Bridgeway in Auckland, the Lighthouse Cuba in Wellington and the Rialto in Tauranga. Bridgeway is screening both the subtitled and dubbed versions of the film, while the Lighthouse will only be screening the subtitled version.

The Wind Rises (Kaze Tachinu) follows Jiro from a young age into adulthood, he dreams of flying and designing beautiful airplanes, but because he’s nearsighted he’s unable to become a pilot. Jiro joins the aircraft division of a major Japanese engineering company in 1927. His genius is soon recognized, and he grows to become one of the world’s most accomplished airplane designers. The Wind Rises gives us key historical events which deeply affects the course of Jiro’s life, including The Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, the tuberculosis epidemic, and Japan’s plunge into war. It’s an epic tale of love, perseverance, and the challenges of living and making choices in a turbulent world.
