The Parkway will be screening the award-winning film “Dollhouse: The Eradication of Female Subjectivity from American Popular Culture" "Dollhouse" is the debut feature film of writer/director Nicole Brending (CU-SOA '11) and won the Grand Jury Prize and the Spirit of Slamdance Award at the 2019 Slamdance Film Festival in Park City. The film recently won Best Movie from the Lucca Film Festival with Rutger Hauer presiding over the jury.
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 Junie’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.
"Dollhouse" 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, “Dollhouse” will have you (guiltily) singing along to Junie’s tragically true tale.
The screening will be followed by a musical performance by Julie Spoons, the star performer and MARGRET is the solo project of Minneapolis-based singer/songwriter Maggie Morrison.
