“An evocative portrait of a vibrant and mysterious artist.” - The Hollywood Reporter
An avant-garde maverick and a rebel in a man’s world, Barbara Rubin regains her rightful place in film history.
Rubin’s film Christmas on Earth caused a sensation when it first screened in New York City in 1964. It shattered artistic conventions and announced a powerful new voice in the city’s underground film scene. All the more remarkable, that the vision belonged to an 18 year old teenager. A virtual Zelig of the ‘60s, Rubin introduced Andy Warhol to the Velvet Underground, Bob Dylan to Kabbalah and bewitched Allen Ginsberg, before unexpectedly leaving the scene behind to lead a life as an Orthodox Jew.
