"In the time of Coronaville" stares at the global pandemic.
That is, I try to be funny, in a deadly serious situation. In this vein, Barbie is stands in for me and everyone else. Why? Barbie is the world’s most popular toy, ever. Before Barbie, toy companies sold “baby” dolls, forcing girls into the role of “mother.” As the iconic personification of all that women/people can do, Barbie can undertake any career: astronaut, veterinarian, flight attendant … after a change in clothes. But isn’t that a trait of all humans? We wear outfits to suit the occasion. In this video, Barbie narrates her inner pandemic-related feelings and experiences in a slide show video with intertitles, as in a silent movie. A piano solo of Stephen Foster's classic "Beautiful Dreamer" plays throughout.
