The Wind Rises

In Japanese animation master Hayao Miyazaki’s final film, Jiro dreams of flying and designing beautiful airplanes. Nearsighted from a young age and unable to be a pilot, Jiro joins a major Japanese engineering company in 1927 and becomes one of the world’s most innovative and accomplished airplane designers, creating beautiful machines that are put to deadly use. Film critic David Ehrlich called the film “Perhaps the greatest animated film ever made . . . a devastatingly honest lament for the corruption of beauty.” Learn more »​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Connecting battalion memb​ers with their families and others around the globe, the Web platform became an indispensable tool of citizen journalism, documenting a range of perspectives on the emotional tolls of war. Inspired by this groundbreaking project, Basetrack Live—developed by Edward Bilous and directed by Seth Bockley—makes its way to the stage, using videos and interviews to tell the story of one group of Marines and their families before, during, and after their deployment in Afghanistan. Learn more »​​​​​​
