Kate Lyn Sheil on ‘Kate Plays Christine’

At this year’s Sundance Film Festival, one of the most talked-about young actresses, Kate Lyn Sheil,  arrived with the narrative Kate Plays Christine, a docudrama about the making of a movie about Christine Chubbuck, the Florida newswoman who shot herself live on television during a report. The gruesome event made headlines and Chubbuck’s story served as inspiration for Network (although with a notable change of gender to the main character) and is still discussed today in connection to gun violence and reality more.
