In its short life, Akihiro Nishino’s beloved picture book POUPELLE OF CHIMNEY TOWN has been transformed into a musical, kabuki, ballet and, of course, the remarkable motion picture brought to life by director Yusuke Hirota (VFX for SHIN GODZILLA, MIND GAME and more).
POUPELLE OF CHIMNEY TOWN presents 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.
Produced at Tokyo's famed STUDIO4ºC, the film features spectacular animation and splendid musical contributions by Yuta Bandoh, Youki Kojima and Nishino himself. This week, in collaboration with Nishino’s company CHIMNEY TOWN, we’re proud to present the first-ever vinyl release of its soundtrack.
For those who haven’t yet experienced the film, the beautiful score isn’t readily available to stream online. However, you can easily watch the film in its entirety on The Roku Channel (free with ads), or rent it on your preferred streaming services, including Amazon Prime Video and Apple TV+.
The POUPELLE OF CHIMNEY TOWN Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available to pre-order Wednesday, 12 NOON CT at The Record Shop.
