AFS x IDA present: Kate Plays Christine

Robert Greene
Grasshopper Films

Join the Austin Film Society and IDA for a screening of Robert Greene's Kate Plays Christine, a "nonfiction thriller" in which actress Kate Lyn Sheil is shown preparing to play the true-life role of newscaster Christine Chubbuck, who committed suicide on live television in 1974.

Variety's Guy Lodge calls the film "teasing, testing and vexingly brilliant." Winner of a Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, Kate Plays Christine is a cinematic mystery that forces us to question everything we see and everything we’re led to believe.

Director Robert Greene will appear in person for a post-film Q&A!
