Storyline

The disturbingly entertaining feature debut of director Nicole Brending, DOLLHOUSE: THE ERADICATION OF FEMALE SUBJECTIVITY FROM AMERICAN POPULAR CULTURE charts the rise and fall of fictional child pop star Junie Spoons as her life story (and the ensuing disasters) unfold, as told by those who knew her. Set in the bubble gum pop world of Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan and told a la VH1's Behind The Music, Junie's story tops itself one scandal after another as she rockets to international stardom and then faces the aftermath of a life under scrutiny.

Brilliant Satire of Misogyny - See it if you can!

This film swept the top awards at Slamdance 2019, and for very good reason: it is an absolutely brilliant, hilarious, and timely portrayal of how our society treats young women as objects, exploits them while they last, and silences their voices if they try to speak up. The writer/director Nicole Brending also created all the dolls, props, and sets for the animation, wrote and performed much of the music, and did many of the voices herself. This satirical tour-de-force dares to say out loud what most people are too afraid to admit in polite company. It's brave, artful, and offensive in just the right way.
