My Silicone Love (Sophie Dros | Netherlands | 28 min.)


Everard has twelve lifelike dolls. He talks with them, dresses them, has sex with them and loves them as if they are real people. Is he happy with this way of living or does he actually long for a real woman? My Silicone Love shows his every day life in contrast with the fantasy world in which his dolls come alive.


It took some HBO-studies until Sophie found her real fascination: creating (documentary) films, music videos and commercials. An exciting storyline and a surprising style are important factors in her work. Sophie is driven by curiosity, especially about people with an offbeat lifestyle. In her second year of Film Academy she made a short documentary for Dutch broadcaster NPO. Her third year movie Rubber Romance (2014) won Best Dramatic Short at the Cinekink Festival in New York. In 2014 she did an internship at VPRO Dorst where she developed new projects and made short content.
