Robert Greene has become known for his resonant and original films, such as Kate Plays Christine (2016) and Bisbee ’17 (2018), that engage in the processes of reconstruction and ‘acting’, finding deep emotional truth in the liminal spaces of ‘non-fiction’.
His latest work, Procession, brings together six men – all survivors of childhood sexual assault at the hands of Catholic priests and clergy – to collectively work through their trauma in a process of drama therapy.
As part of a radically collaborative filmmaking process, they create fictional scenes based on memories, dreams and experiences, meant to explore the church rituals, culture and hierarchies that enabled silence around their abuse.
On the 9th of December we held an online Q&A with Robert. Hosted by Simran Hans.
