Tiny Shoulders: Rethinking Barbie

Andrea Blaugrund Nevins, 92 minutes, Documentary, in English, USA, 2018

In her 59 years, Barbie - the most popular doll ever created - 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 writers, journalists, 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 and the effect it has had on culture.

“Tiny Shoulders: Rethinking Barbie” had its world premiere at Tribeca Film Festival.
