From the acclaimed Japanese master of animation, Hayao Miyazaki, a look at the life of Jiro Horikoshi, one of the world’s most accomplished aircraft designers. From adolescence Jiro dreamt of flying and designing beautiful aeroplanes, inspired by the great Italian aeronautical engineer Caproni. Near-sighted and unable to be a pilot, Jiro joins a major Japanese engineering company and emulates his hero.

Visually, this is a gorgeous film and is the ninth highest grossing animation film of all time.

“Perhaps the greatest animated film ever made”
