When I Rise is a powerful new documentary about Barbara Smith Conrad, a gifted University of Texas music student who became a target of racial discrimination and ultimately ascended to the heights of international opera. An official selection of the South by Southwest Film Festival, When I Rise will be screened twice during SXSW.  Tickets are available to the public about 15 minutes prior to screening time (pending available seating). The single admission ticket price is $10 for all SXSW screenings.

  1. I met Barbara Smith Conrad at the most recent documentary film screening in Mt. Pleasant, Texas.

    Meeting her in person is electrifying. She shows us that God at His own time will make everything right when we keep our focus on Him and continue to do what He has called us to do.

    The documentary is very powerful and I am so glad that I had the opportunity to cover it for one of our biggest advertisers, AT&T who bankrolled the documentary.

    Again, seeing her, taking her photos has added to my career as a journalist and my person as a disciple of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
