Actress blurs the line between performance and reality at Wisconsin Film Festival 2014

Actress kicked off the Wisconsin Film Festival on Thursday with a packed house and an appearance by filmmaker Robert Greene and star Brandy Burre. To judge by the lively Q&A, the crowd connected with Greene's unconventional documentary about Burre, an actress from The Wire who leaves the profession to raise her kids in upstate New York. With its mixture of theatricality and raw emotion, Actress blurs the line between performance and real life.

Greene and Burre spoke with Isthmus after the screening in the UW Elvehjem Building, explaining how artifice led them to "a deeper kind of authenticity."
