Abstract:

This festival favorite documentary gets at the heart of a cultural phenomenon driven by an obsession with young female sexuality and internet popularity. This ever growing phenom is told through Rio, a bona fide "Tokyo Idol" who takes us on her journey to fame. We meet her "brothers", a group of adult middle aged male super fans who devote their lives to following her--in the virtual world and in real life. With her provocative look into the Japanese pop music industry and its focus on traditional beauty ideals, filmmaker Kyoko Miyake confronts the nature of gender power dynamics at work. As the female idols become younger and younger, Miyake offers a critique on the veil of internet fame and the new terms of engagement that are now playing out IRL around the globe.
