'Chimney Sweeper' is a short music animation video based on the song by composer Hannes Loeschel with singer Phil Minton. This song is the musical version of a Poem by William Blake from the cycle „Songs of Innocence“ and tells the sad story of a little chimney sweeper boy in the 19th century. Filmmaker Christine Schörkhuber and Drawer Stefanie Wuschitz reinterpretated the text with modern analogies on Working Condition, Industrialisation and Capitalism.
