ACMI presents


Greta Gerwig | UK, USA | 2023 | PG

This event has ended and tickets are no longer available.

Celebrate the closing day of our Goddess exhibition with the powerful, glamourous, and rebellious Barbie.

To live in Barbie Land is to be a perfect being in a perfect place. Unless you have a full-on existential crisis. Or you’re a Ken.

For Barbie (Margot Robbie), every day is perfect from the moment she wakes up in her dreamhouse until things finish up with an amazing blow-out party. But when she begins to have thoughts of death, her perfect world begins to spectacularly unravel. With Ken (Ryan Gosling) by her side, Barbie sets out to the real world to find the cause of her woes.
