KATE PLAYS CHRISTINE

+ Dir. Q&A via Skype, Friday 14th October, 18:20
Dir: Robert Greene
United States / 2016 / 112mins

★★★★ "Fascinating" - The Guardian

"Ingenious" - Variety

Actor Kate Lyn Sheil is preparing to play the role of Christine Chubbuck, a Florida television host who committed suicide on live air in 1974.

Filmmaker Robert Greene cleverly forgoes your standard talking-head-and-sound-bite approach to nonfiction storytelling, instead choosing to employ Sheil as a conduit to understanding an impossibly complex issue.

Committed to doing justice to Christine’s life, Kate not only candidly pulls back the curtain on her acting process, but she also reveals the biases and presumptions even supposed experts can provide in their diagnosis. 

Kate Plays Christine boldly challenges its subjects and audience alike to accept that answers from the past are never easy.

The Q&A event is held in partnership with Open City Documentary Festival
