What does it mean to tell somebody else's story? In this ingenious blend of documentary and psychological thriller, Robert Greene follows Kate Lyn Sheil through her creative process as she prepares for her next, tragic role: Christine Chubbuck, a Florida newscaster who committed suicide live on-air in 1974. As Kate investigates (and ultimately becomes obsessed with) Chubbuck's story, she discovers that little is actually known about the real woman (even though her story was rumored to have inspired the classic Hollywood film Network). Through their collaboration, Robert, Kate and cinematographer Sean Price Williams raise questions surrounding the sometimes unstable boundaries between performance, the authentic self and the storytelling impulse. 'Kate Plays Christine' is as much about unraveling a mystery as it is a document of the creative process.
