Christmas on Earth: Barbara Rubin And The Exploding NY Underground

By on February 7, 2020

Barbara Rubin And The Exploding NY Underground: a compelling documentary about auteur filmmaker Barbara Rubin’s life and work.

Known for shattering boundaries in contemporary art, Rubin is a legend of the ’60s avant-garde. She introduced Warhol to the Velvet Underground and Bob Dylan to the Kabbalah. Her quintessential offering “Christmas on Earth” (created at just 18 years old) is a groundbreaking art-porn film that shattered norms and created a voice for sexually charged contemporary artwork inspiring the likes of Carolee Schneemann and Tracey Emin.

Go inside the world and mind of a counterculture icon in another excellent offering in Night Flight’s quest for all things enthusiastically daring and alternative. Watch this film in our Behind the Scenes: Docs That Define A Culture section!
