All names are in “given name, family name” order



Are you ready to be transported to a world of steam? STUDIO4oC are proud to present Poupelle of Chimney Town. Based on a picture book by Akihiro Nishino, who also wrote the screenplay, this story follows a young boy who befriends a garbage man. Together, they look up to the stars determined to prove that there is life outside of this cut off city.

Have we piqued your interest? Yes is the correct answer. Well, we have a lot more to share, so dig in and see what Chimney Town has to offer. For starters, check out the official synopsis which shines a bright light through the thick smoke.

Poupelle of Chimney Town is the story of young Lubicchi living among the thick
smoke from the chimneys of his isolated town, yearning to see the “stars” — to know the truth — 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 STUDIO4oC, Poupelle of Chimney Town brings laughter, tears and joy.
