Review

Katherine Brooks has an organic visual style that allows her work to be quietly powerful and boldly energetic. --LA Weekly

A remarkable film --The Huffington Post

Product Description

Face 2 Face is a feature length documentary that follows the 11,000 mile cross country adventure of Emmy Award winning filmmaker, Katherine Brooks (Loving Annabelle, Waking Madison). After major surgery, Katherine found herself 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 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, in the summer of 2011, Katherine set out on a journey that would change her life and those around her.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's not a movie, it's a movement May 16, 2013
Format:DVD
I can literally not say enough about this film, it had (& will continue to have) such a powerful impact on me. It's not a movie, it's a movement. It reminds us that we are not alone, that no time spent on the internet can replace a real hug or a face to face conversation. It's all about connecting in the most genuine way. The guts Kat had to make it, to film herself as she did is something that has forever changed me. She's redefined the word "hero" in my world. She took control of her life & became the change she wishes to see. This is an incredibly inspiring film! You must see this film, you will walk away from it with a new view of our world...a better one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get Connected! May 2, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
1 year ago I discovered Director Katherine Brooks and her film, Face 2 Face, on Twitter. At that time I was not an active part of society and hadn't been years. I was battling anxiety and depression, and I was losing the battle. After seeing Face 2 Face I was inspired to get off of my couch, conquer my demons and begin to truly live my life. I am eternally grateful to Katherine for her willingness to openly share her experiences with us in Face 2 Face. If you have ever felt alone, unloved, under-appreciated or just want to be inspired you must watch this film - you will not be disappointed and you will understand why Face 2 Face is not just a movie, it is a movement! Get connected!

4.0 out of 5 stars Self-indulgent yes, but there's brutal honesty here February 6, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Filmmaker Katherine Brooks turns the camera on herself in this film. After surgery, Brooks put out a notice on Facebook saying that she would visit the first 50 people to respond. Soon, she had a cross-country itinerary. This film follows her on that journey.

At first, I expected a documentary that showed us the variety of online "friends" she had. I expected a few poignant moments, a fair amount of mutual admiration, and perhaps some unintended humor. I thought there might be some mockery of the seriousness with which people treat their online relationships, but I thought it possible, too, that I would see the opposite: a celebration of how real these relationships can be. As it turned out, there was none of the former and some of the latter, but in neither case was I fully prepared for what this film showed me.

Some of the interactions were truly touching, especially those of lesbians (sometimes that's clear, and other times, I assume) who nearly deified Brooks, seeing in her a voice they did not find elsewhere. For them, Brooks seems to be a hero, a friend, and a counselor. There is nothing romantic here--just honest human interactions. One interaction reunites Brooks with a childhood friend for whom Brooks's sexuality apparently proved too much.

But the heart of the film is Brooks herself. Throughout much of this, she is profoundly depressed--suicidally so at times. She comes across as a very fragile person, despite her strengths. I see that another person called the film "self-indulgent," and it's hard to argue with that point. But that self-indulgence is not necessarily a weakness. In fact, it's what gives the film its greatest power.

5.0 out of 5 stars Immensely Inspiring August 19, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This documentary is extremely relevant in a world where our lives and connections have become increasingly digitized and virtual. What moved me most about the film was that it was a real slice of a person's life, filmed in raw honesty by an incredibly courageous artist. For the 112minutes of the film, I felt like I was walking next to someone and could feel the joy and anguish as real emotions. Nothing is airbrushed to make it palatable to the greatest number of possible viewers. No place or emotional landscape was left unexplored - that takes a great deal of courage and is what inspired me most. This is a documentary, but it is also a great piece of art. Job well done to Kat Brooks, you are my newest hero! I would recommend this to anyone asking the difficult metaphysical questions in their life, as one person's journey to find meaning again..

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Movie!! May 6, 2013
By Lori
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Kat you out did yourself!! Fantastic movie which shows the transformation of you, while you are on your journey, and including all the players that have a hand in changing you from a caterpillar to a beautiful butterfly. I would recommend this movie 100%...You took a big chance but it paid off!! Will be purchasing it for sure!!

Now for the sceptic, rent it and see for yourself. You will want to buy for sure.

If you want to see a movie where "connection" is the main mantra, than this movie is for you. Katherine Brooks takes it to a higher level and is empathetic, caring, and compassionate to all that she meets. Her journey was one of connection, not only with her facebook friends, but also with herself. A movie of a lifetime.

This movie is a must see. If you ever felt the need that you needed to make a call or go see someone, this movie will re emphasize that. Put the social media away and reconnect with people, the ones that matter, not the ones that dont is the takeaway. And get rid of things that dont matter. Katherine Brooks is a fabulous film maker and awesome person. Keep on with real movies, and real people
