About

SHUT UP BARBIE has rarely been shown and is a "rediscovered" film, so to speak. The film is the filmmaker's (Vincent Grenier) reaction to the obsession a seven year old girl has with her Barbie Dolls. The film builds on the Barbie Dolls' referential content and limits. While innocuous at first, the humor eventually becomes rather unsettling and tragic. Ann Knutson plays the role of the mother Barbie Doll.
