The Wind Rises – Japanese Anime Movie screening (7:00-9:00 pm) Events Area

If you are an admirer of Japanese Anime or want to discover this form of animation, I invite you to attend a showing of ‘The Wind Rises’, a Japanese animated historical drama written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki. The film follows the life of Jiro, a young man who dreams of designing and flying beautiful airplanes; it was the highest-grossing Japanese film in Japan in 2013 and received critical acclaim. This film won and was nominated for several awards, including nominations for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and the Japan Academy Prize for Animation of the Year.  It was the final film directed by Miyazaki before his retirement in September 2013.
