This provocative film gets at the heart of a cultural phenomenon driven by obsession with young female sexuality and Internet popularity. The story 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 male superfans who devote their lives to following her, even quitting their jobs to pursue their fixation full time. Tokyo Idols is a high-energy look at the Japanese pop music industry and its complex gender power dynamics. (2017, 88 min, digital)
