THE ERADICATION OF FEMALE SUBJECTIVITY FROM AMERICAN POPULAR CULTURE
WHAT CRITICS ARE SAYING
“A savage takedown of the Whitney/Britney industrial complex…”
STEVE DOLLAR, INDIEWIRE
”Dollhouse putsa very unforgiving funhouse mirror on our society and its commodification of women’s bodies. It pulls no punches in it’s lampooning of American culture… I hope that this film gets a big audience on the festival circuit this year.”
“Vital and alive. It is a film that anyone who thinks they can suffer the slings and arrows of an in your face assault on how you think should see…One of the most important films at Slamdance and 2019 as well.”
“While I'm use to a long history of transgressive humor from male artists, there are moments in Dollhouse that make Trey Parker and Matt Stone look almost refined. I can't wait to see what Ms. Brending has for the future.”
A puppet animation told a la VH1’s Behind the Music, “Dollhouse: The Eradication of Female Subjectivity from American Popular Culture” charts the rise and fall of fictional child star Junie spoon’s career as her life is splashed all over the media and recounted by those who claim to know her - a greedy record producer, a narcissistic mother, an opportunistic friend, ex-boyfriends and the like - until she is inevitably eliminated from her own story.
The debut feature film of writer/director Nicole Brending will have you in painful laughter as the film blatantly ignores political correctness in a bold, no-holds-barred look at the insidious mechanisms governing misogyny in America. With hand-made puppets and original pop songs, you will be (guiltily) singing along to Junie’s tragically true tale.
