Pompo is a talented, gutsy, and unapologetic movie producer. She works on her filmmaking day and night in the movie capital Nyallywood. One day Pompo tells her movie-loving but apprehensive assistant Gene, “You will be the director for my next script”.
Will Gene succeed his first time as a director and create a “masterpiece”? He sets out to find out, with a script built around the legendary aging actor Martin Braddock (think Brando) and a young actress seeking her first big break.
Pompo: The Cinephile is a story of a new director struggling and devoting his life for his movie, while also putting a playful lens on the filmmaking world itself. Chock-full of insider movie references, it’s a funny, fast-paced look at what it takes to fulfill your dreams in show business. At 90 minutes it’s also the perfect runtime!
