New Trailer: The Wind Rises (Kaze Tachinu – Japan, 2013)


The grandmaster of animation, Hayao Miyazaki, made the somewhat unexpected announcement of his retirement from filmmaking a few months back when his film The Wind Rises played at the Venice Film Festival. The film’s trailer has arrived, and after great reviews from the festival circuit I’m hoping it’s a great watch. The film tells the story of Jiro Horikoshi, a famed Japanese aeronautical engineer that blends truth and fiction to tell his story against the backdrop of war.

The Wind Rises will release in Australian and New Zealand cinemas in 2014 thanks to Madman.
