Do you know the city of Chapeau?

To see it you need three things: a stereoscope, a moonlit night, and the wind. In Chapeau, the wind dominates, and although it blows away all kind of things, including memories, its inhabitants don’t seem to bother about it too much. They use the wind as a mean of transportation and organise incredible kite competitions. What they really can’t stand is when the wind takes their hats away!

Most blown-away objects end up at the very busy Lost and Found Office, but the hats mysteriously disappear and are lost forever. So far no one has discovered where they end up…

  • A wonderful and visionary journey, full of irony and furry hat thieves.
