| Eye opening look into the Japanese Foreign - Idol Culture
Fantastic insider's and outsider's experience of the Big In Japan phenomenon as a Foreign Idol. What makes this documentary is that you get to travel with one of the documentary making team members, Dave, throughout the 2-3 years he puts himself into this social experiment. It's real, it's raw and its really funny! There are also really touching moments in the piece as well that only a great documentary maker can capture.
