Face 2 Face -- How friendly are your Facebook friends? Are they really your friends? Filmmaker Katherine Brooks (Loving Annabelle) sets on an 11,000-mile journey across the country to meet some of them to find out. A FilmBuff Presentation.
Face 2 Face -- Face 2 Face is a feature length documentary that follows the 11,000 mile cross country adventure of filmmaker, Katherine Brooks.

After major surgery, Katherine was feeling isolated and alone. Spending her days on Facebook, Katherine noticed she had 5,000 virtual friends, but had not had a hug in over a month. Struck with the idea that it takes more than a friend request to be a friend, she posted the following status update: the first 50 people who say YES...I'm coming to your city to meet you face to face.

Within 9 minutes, Katherine had her 50.

Funded solely by 846 backers on Kickstarter, Katherine set out on a journey that would change her life and the lives of those around her.

Face 2 Face Resonates, 12 August 2012
Author: Lucy Burton from United States

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.
