Pompo: The Cinephile

Takayuki Hirao (Attack On Titan) directs an animated Japanese comedy set behinds the lens of a first-time filmmaker's production. Full of knowing nods to modern cinema, POMPO THE CINEPHILE is an entertaining adventure for those with a passion for the movies.

Pompo is a talented and gutsy producer in the movie-making capital of the world. Although she's known for B-movies, one day Pompo tells her movie-loving but apprehensive assistant Gene that he will direct her next script: a delicate drama about an aging and tormented creative genius, starring the legendary and Brando-esque actor Martin Braddock, and a young actress seeking her first break. But when the production heads towards chaos, can Gene rise to Pompo's challenge, and succeed as a first-time director?
