The Boston Festival of Films from Japan: Tokyo Idols

The Boston Festival of Films from Japan: Tokyo Idols

This documentary offers a provocative look into the meteoric rise of the “girl band” in Japan. The story is told through Rio, a bona fide “Tokyo Idol” with a following of “Brothers”—middle-aged male super fans who have devoted their lives to following Rio on the internet and in real life. Once considered to be on the fringes of society, the Brothers, who gave up salaried jobs to pursue an interest in female idol culture, have now become a mainstream phenomenon via internet
