Won the Screenwriting Award and was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance 2016. This film follows actor Kate Lyn Sheil preparing to play the role of Christine Chubbuck, a Florida television host who committed suicide on air in 1974. Filmmaker Robert Greene cleverly forgoes your standard talking-head-and-sound-bite approach to nonfiction storytelling, instead choosing to employ Kate Lyn 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. ★★★★ "This is a thick, red steak for arthouse intellectuals" - Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian ★★★★ "A concerned critique of movies that cheerfully leach off of real lives, real people and real history" - David Jenkins, Little White Lies ★★★★★ "A thoroughly disturbing cinematic experience: non-fiction filmmaking by way of psychological thriller" - Josh-Slater Williams, The Skinny
