Cinema 10 screens Hayao Miyazaki's The Wind Rises on Monday, April 21, at the Roxy Theater in Potsdam.  Show time is 7:15 PM. This is the ninth and penultimate film of the spring 2014 Cinema 10 season.

In what he declares to be his final animated film, Hayao Miyazaki(Spirited Away) brings to film his manga of the same name. It's the story of Jiro Horikoshi, engineer and aviation pioneer, who dreams of airplanes rising on the wind, but who created the Mitsubishi Zero planes, used at Pearl Harbor and for kamikaze missions during World War II. Unlike Miyazaki’s more child-oriented stories, The Wind Rises deals with adult conflicts and choices, but from the perspective of a filmmaker whose hope has always been for a future with no battle planes.

“Miyazaki is at the peak of his visual craftsmanship here,” says Scott Foundas of Variety, “alternating lush, boldly colored rural vistas with epic, crowded urban canvases, soaring aerial perspectives and test flights both majestic and ill-fated.”

The Wind Rises is rated PG-13 for some disturbing images and smoking. It runs 126 minutes and is in English, German, Japanese, and French with subtitles.
