Filmmaker Robert Greene thought for years about a documentary on Christine Chubbuck, a Florida news reporter who committed suicide on live television in 1974. What he didn’t want to do though was make a straight-forward movie about a depressed woman. So Greene proposed an unorthodox approach to actress Kate Lyn Sheil. The film crew would follow Sheil as she prepared to take on the tragic role of Christine. Tuesday, Greene joins Doug to talk about performance, authenticity, and storytelling.
