"None of the footage that’s shown in the film actually came from the family," she revealed to The Project. "In fact, I didn’t know it was in there until I saw it myself."
Kate admitted that the unseen footage was a struggle to sit through. She describes her brother as having been "incredibly private."

"I think I screamed and cried through the whole first viewing," Kate confessed. "It’s quite a cathartic experience, I think, especially for our family." Kate's even begun watching some of her brother's films again. "I now have 13-year-old girls who are wanting to see the films. So, through them I’m finding that it’s become a little easier for me to see the joy that it gives them."
