Plot Synopsis:

"A delightful, exhilarating film to watch" – Kim Morrissy, Anime News Network

Pompo is a talented and gutsy producer in "Nyallywood," 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 artistic 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?

Pompo the Cinephile is a rollicking, exuberant ode to the power of the movies and the joys and heartbreak of the creative process as a new director and his team devote their lives to the pursuit of a "masterpiece."
