Kate Plays Christine


2016 | 112 minutes | Rated NR

In 1974, during a morning broadcast, a talk show host named Christine Chubbuck said, "In keeping with Channel 40's policy of bringing you the latest in 'blood and guts,' and in living color, you are going to see another first: attempted suicide." She then shot and killed herself on live TV. In 2016, two movies about Chubbuck premiered at the Sundance Film Festival—Christine, a movie about the final days of her life directed by Antonio Campos, and Kate Plays Christine, a chilling documentary that focuses on an actress preparing to portray Chubbuck. Kate Plays Christine won the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Writing.
