IFI FAMILY FESTIVAL 2021: POUPELLE OF CHIMNEY TOWN

Yusuke Hirota

EIGA ENTOTSUMACHI NO PUPERU

Age recommendation: 10+

The story of young Lubicchi who lives among the thick smoke from the chimneys of his isolated town, yearning to see the “stars” his father always told him about. One Halloween night he meets Poupelle, a man made of garbage, and together they look to the sky as their adventure begins. Spectacularly beautiful, filled with inspiring performances and splendid music and sound effects, and produced at Tokyo’s famed Studio 4ºC, Poupelle of Chimney Town brings laughter, tears and joy.

Matt Walton’s short film The Lighthouse Man will be screened before the film:

Lighthouse Man
The Lighthouse Man is a big, friendly giant who loves helping the humans who live in the nearby village. That is, until one day, the humans don’t need his help anymore. What will he do now?
