There are tales of saving our souls, saving our relationships and even saving our friends, but when was the last time you heard about someone launching a massive rescue mission to save herself? Successful Hollywood writer/director Katherine Brooks (Loving Annabelle, Frameline30) has more than 5,000 Facebook friends, but what is the value of virtual friendship if you haven't had a hug in a month? Struggling with depression, addiction and years of suppressed trauma, Kat comes to grips with her need for true human interaction and impulsively posts on her Facebook wall a vow to visit the first fifty people who respond. An enthusiastic and hearty response comes immediately, and Kat quickly hops in a Face 2 Face van and embarks on an 11,000 mile journey around America, meeting complete strangers, reigniting relationships with long lost acquaintances, and exploring a past that continues to rear its ugly head in the present. The healing goes both ways as Kat and the diverse people she ... Written by SARA MARIA VIZCARRONDO

Face 2 Face Resonates
12 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most brilliant, honest, REAL, heart-wrenching, gentle, soulful, graceful, funny, and powerful things I've seen in easily a decade. The director Kat Brooks is wondrous in this exploration of herself, the lives around her, and the relationship between them.

It's also touching to see how earnestly she really wants her work to mean something positive for the larger world, touch people's hearts, and make them think more consciously about their relative impact on each other. That's really the whole game in Hollywood (and the Arts more broadly) - the real challenge that every business force in the industry actually tries to prevent you from succeeding at because of the mindless fears the profit motive exacerbates, but which conversely is the most important to achieve. She wasn't finding that connection in oxymoronic "scripted reality television", and as a genuine documentarian, the dishonesty of that was truly driving her nuts.

She risks quite a bit revealing her jumble of feelings from hurt, to scared, to loving, to angry, to caring, to flat-out confused, to self-deprecatingly funny. Kat has some truly horrible emotional wounds, but ultimately has not been conquered by them - though she came frighteningly close to the edge, largely due to the carelessness of others. However, her personal challenges have made her well-placed to not just sympathize, but empathize with others, and that informs this work. As one of the friends she finds along the 11,000 mile journey simply says, "Good job."

In a world that is increasingly isolating while claiming to be hyper-connected thanks to our technological advances, I guarantee that this movie will resonate with you.

Kat GETS IT. Get the movie "Face 2 Face", then get connected for REAL. You are not alone.
