Underground filmmaker Barbara Rubin’s 1964 art-porn masterpiece Christmas on Earth, made when she was only 18 years old, shattered creative and sexist boundaries and shocked NYC's experimental film scene. A rebellious Zelig of the 60s, she introduced Andy Warhol to the Velvet Underground and Bob Dylan to the Kabbalah. Working with Jonas Mekas at the Film-Makers’ Cooperative, Rubin was instrumental in creating NYC's thriving underground film community and was a rare female voice in a world of powerful men. And then she vanished and became an Hasidic Jew. Working with private letters, footage from Jonas Mekas and rare clips from the Andy Warhol archives, the film takes us inside the world and mind of Barbara Rubin; a woman who truly believed that film could change the world.

The 1968 George Romero classic is reanimated using footage of characters from other films and television series watching the movie on TV, online, at the cinema, or the drive-in. These collected scenes are arranged sequentially along a bed track of the original film. The countless clips testify to the ongoing influence of the original, and to the fact that copyright laws may have robbed Romero of royalties, but also ensured his legacy.
