Join DDFC for a night under the stars with an outdoor screening of ‘Tiny Shoulders: Rethinking Barbie’ at in5 Design.
In her 59 years, Barbie has become a fashion icon, a lightning rod and a target for feminists. Tiny Shoulders: Rethinking Barbie, featuring newly discovered footage and unprecedented access to the inner workings of a toy giant during Barbie’s biggest reinvention, surveys 60 years of women in popular culture through the lens of this 11.5 inch, Zelig-like plastic icon. Featuring interviews with Gloria Steinem, Roxane Gay, Peggy Orenstein, Mattel insiders and cultural historians, the documentary follows the progression and regression in women’s recent fight for equality by weaving six decades of shockingly sexist media with fly-on-the-wall insight into Barbie’s invention and reinvention.
This event is in collaboration with the American Film Showcase and the U.S. Consulate General in the UAE. Film is directed by Andrea Blaugrund Nevins.
