Super, Girls! (Chinese: 超级女生; pinyin: chāo jí nǚ shēng), directed by Jian Yi, is a 2007 independent Chinese documentary that follows 10 female teenagers on their quest to become instant superstars on China’s biggest television show. The Chinese equivalent of American Idol, the "Super Girls Singing Contest" spawned an unprecedented pop culture phenomenon. Drawing over 400 million viewers, the ending text of the documentary implies the show was cancelled by the Chinese government for political reasons. The film provides unparalleled, intimate access into the contestants’ lives over several months. Through candid interviews and footage of auditions and competitions, Super, Girls! examines sexuality and success in the new China.
