The Movie: 
The Wind Rises (2013) tells the story of real-life engineer Jirô Horikoshi, the man who invented the Mitsubishi A6M Zero. Stunningly animated by acclaimed filmmaker Hiyao Miyazaki, this breathtaking movie proves that cartoons are not just for kids – they can be real art.
Forced to abandon his childhood dream to become a pilot, Jiro pursues a career as an aeronautical engineer instead. As Jiro finds new purpose and meaning in life, his untamed creativity and love for aviation pave the way for his magnum opus, the legendary Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighter aircraft. But with WWII and the involvement of the Imperial Japanese Army looming, is the highly accomplished aeroplane designer prepared to confront life’s tragedies and sacrifice everything for the glory of Japan?
