The Wind Rises

Studio Ghibli’s latest animated feature, The Wind Rises, has a new trailer with English subtitles in anticipation of its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. Take a look.

As the trailer points out, The Wind Rises pays tribute to two historical figures Jiro Horikoshi and Tatsuo Hori. Horikori was the designer of the famous WWII-era Zero fighter while Hori was a poet and writer during the WWII era. Horikoshi’s role is self evident, but Hori’s role is a little bit more interesting.

Hori wrote a novel, Kaze Tachinu or The Wind Has Risen, that tells the tale of an unnamed male narrator. It centers around his observations on life, death, and how all of it stems from his relationship to Setsuko, a woman stricken with tuberculosis. Fast forward to 2009, Hayao Miyazaki of Studio Ghibli fame adapted the novel into a manga series of the same name with some alterations. He replaced the unnamed narrator with Horikoshi and later adapted the series into a movie which was released last July in Japan.

The Wind Rises will be screened at the TIFF on August 20th.

About Karli Winata

Karli Winata is an avid gamer with a taste for a little bit of everything. Except for sports games. And racing sims. And definitely not hidden object games! I guess everything is too broad a term. Suffice it to say that he has been known to play hours of Call of Duty multiplayer in between bouts of Persona fusing and Star Coin collecting while saving the world/galaxy through sensibly bald space marines or plucky teenagers with impossible hairstyles. Where does he find the time to write about them?

    i’d love to see this movie. I’ve watched the trailer a dozen times now. animations’ ‘gone with the wind?’ maybe, maybe not. the movie miyazaki is remembered for? …by non-otaku, maybe. the movie looks amazing.

    For anyone who cares, the movie will not be screening on the 20th of August. That’s when the schedule will be released. It will be playing sometime during TIFF (which is happening from September 5th to the 15th, as far as I’ve read). There is a good possibility of multiple screenings during this time period. I’ll post more info when the 20th hits and the schedule is released.

    Another masterpiece in production. I’ll be sure to see the schedule for the screenings.
