2018 METROPOLIS COMPETITION WINNER

US PREMIERE Offering a recontextualization of the 1960s New York art and experimental film scene through the story of a remarkably influential, yet unheralded, figure, Chuck Smith’s film introduces viewers to Barbara Rubin. This extraordinary young filmmaker, who defied sexist conventions when she picked up a film camera and shot an art-porn masterpiece, was instrumental in connecting Andy Warhol to the Velvet Underground and Bob Dylan to the Kabbalah before dramatically and unexpectedly leaving the scene behind as quickly as she arrived.
