United States, 2018

Synopsis

Lifelong friend Jonas Mekas saved all of Barabara’s letters, creating a rich archive that filmmaker Chuck Smith carefully sculpts into this fascinating portrait of a nearly forgotten artist. An avante-garde maverick, a rebel in a man’s world, Barbara Rubin regains her rightful place in film history.
