The Yale Center Beijing is pleased to invite you to a screening of the documentary Super, Girls! followed by a conversation with Director Jian Yi and one of the film’s “heroes” on how their lives have changed eight years after participating in one of China most watched television shows.

Super, Girls! is the only independent documentary film created from the Super Girl Singing Contest show, which became the most popular TV show ever made. Controversies arose as rumors about corruption and complaints about the show being too “vulgar” spread. Its tremendous off-site voting mechanism was a popular phenomenon during the time that cell phones first became a household tool in China. This documentary follows several 18-year-olds as they pursue their dreams in a nation undergoing great change.

After screening the film, the audience members will meet one of the film’s “heroes”, as well as Director Jian Yi. What have these former “super girls” experienced in the last eight years? What are their thoughts now that the Super Girls is no longer a national sensation? How did they perceive themselves eight years ago? How have they matured and changed? What are their dreams today?

This film has English subtitles. The question and answer session will be in Chinese. Please register by January 23 here.
