Poupelle of Chimney Town is the breath-taking story of young Lubicchi and a man made of garbage, Poupelle. Living among the thick smoke from the chimneys of his isolated town, Lubicchi yearns to see the “stars” his father always told him about. Spectacularly beautiful, Poupelle of Chimney Town is filled with inspiring performances, splendid music and sound effects and produced at Tokyo’s famed Studio 4oC.

The adaptation of the best-selling picture book Poupelle of Chimney Town by Nishino Akihiro (one of Japan’s most famous comedians) is a gloriously rendered animated delight.
