ROCK SALT RELEASING announces the release of multi award-winning writer/director/producer, Nicole Brending’s (Selfied, Operated by Invisible Hands) feature debut, DOLLHOUSE: The Eradication of Female Subjectivity from American Popular Culture – a brilliant and brave satire of misogyny told through our society’s perspective of women as objects.
“A savage takedown of the Whitney/Britney celebrity-industrial complex,” wrote Indiewire.
Arriving on digital platforms this August, DOLLHOUSE is set in the bubble gum pop world of Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan and told by entertainment reporters. Junie Spoon’s pop star story runs the gamut: from losing her virginity in a sex tape, to 24-hour marriages to a Patty-Hearst style kidnapping and bank heist, to the murder of her mother. The stylized puppets reveal the hypocrisies of an opportunistic society that preys on the talents and contributions of women.
DOLLHOUSE is a scathing look at what it means to be female in a modern world; assaulted by men and women and harassed by the media, representing a new era obsessed with identity and entitlement. Junie’s fall from grace is a cautionary tale about the consequences of denying women their own voice and a reflexive expose forcing us to acknowledge the less than savory pop industrial complex we all can’t help but buy into.

Brending’s satirical puppet-animation feature made waves at Slamdance, receiving accolades for ‘Best Narrative Feature’ and the ‘Spirit of Slamdance Award’. Successfully competed on the film festival circuit, DOLLHOUSE garnered many international triumphs including ‘Best Feature’ at Italy’s Lucca Film Festival.
Junie’s sex tape was recently leaked, and she has responded to the media and the #FreeJunie movement. Support her here: http://www.egoallstars.com/junie-spoons-sex-tape-leaked/.
