Low-Fi presents Gertrude Barnstone: Home Movie

About the Event

Low-Fi celebrates the life of Gertrude Barnstone with a special screening of Gertrude Barnstone: Home Movie with Director Jon Schwartz in person Thursday January 9, 2020 at 7 pm @ Rice Cinema


For the first time on film, Gertrude Barnstone, activist, actress, artist — up close and personal. A film essay, GERTRUDE BARNSTONE: HOME MOVIE examines the themes and mediations that have been of import in her remarkable life. For this second film in his HOME MOVIE series, filmmaker Jon Schwartz has turned his 45 year friendship with Gertrude into a film that is revealing and deeply humanistic. The film details her youthful beginnings as an artist, her stint as an actress, her pioneering liberal influence on the Houston Independent School District, and her marriage to architect Howard Barnstone. The film was shot by esteemed still photographer, Arthur Meyerson.
