Talking Documentary – Robert Greene returns to his roots to film pro wrestlers in “Fake It So Real”

Listen to the full episode:

Robert Greene is an award-winning filmmaker who directed the highly regarded Netflix documentary, “Procession.” But 12 years ago, Greene was only beginning to refine his voice and vision as a young filmmaker. A lifelong wrestling fan, Greene parlayed a family connection into documentary treasure, following a handful of pro wrestlers over a week leading up to a show in rural North Carolina. Greene’s film, “Fake It So Real,” dives into a subculture that is poorly understood by city dwellers, and a subculture that would soon push its way to the foreground of the American conversation.
