Official synopsis

Lubicchi lives among large chimneys whose thick smoke has always covered the sky of his city. He’d like to prove to everyone that his father was telling the truth and that there are stars beyond the clouds. One Halloween night, the little chimney sweep meets Poupelle, a strange creature with whom he decides to explore the sky.

The programmer’s eye

“Poupelle” is like a large open-air storage room, but where any discovery is magic. It offers a very strong friendship, adventure and stunts, fantasy and inventiveness, powerful energy and a beautiful ecological lesson.

— Aurélie Oria-Badoc
