Loaded Films has announced a new English feature documentary film production, "The Land of Idols," directed by Jean-Armand Bougrelle.
The subject matter of the film is described as follows: “From sprawling urban Tokyo to the rural hamlets of Japan, from record breaking mega girl-bands to underground idols of Akihabara, 'The Land of Idols' offers a journey through one of the most significant creations of Japanese pop culture.”
Bougrelle, a produced screenwriter and longtime resident of Japan, draws on his film and TV experience to explore his deep interest in the idol phenomenon.
A crowdfunding campaign has just been launched on Indiegogo, offering more details on the film and people involved, a series of promotional videos, and a variety of perks for contributors. A subsequent Japanese campaign is also forthcoming.© Japan Today
