Chako Paul City
For me filmmaking always starts with a story need to be told. Commercial or documentary, a product full off cgi... The story comes first. This is the story behind the name.
Chako Paul City (or Shakebao) is a fictional town of 25,000 all-female residents located in northern Sweden, reports of which surfaced in Chinese press agencies Xinhua and Harbin News in 2009. Said to have been founded in 1820 by a wealthy, man-hating widow, men are barred from entering the town and most of its desperate, sex-starved inhabitants have turned to lesbianism. Immediately following the reports, millions of Chinese men swamped Swedish tourist companies with requests for information about it.
Claes Bertilson, spokesperson for Sweden's Association of Local Authorities and Regions, said: “At 25,000 residents, the town would be one of the largest in northern Sweden, and I find it hard to believe that you could keep something like that a secret for more than 150 years.
