Editorial Reviews

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars vicarious May 24, 2014
By another
Format:Amazon Instant Video
i stumbled on this video by accident looking for facebook movie "the social network". apparently, i like to watch these types of videos (face 2 face, etc) because i do not have the time, energy, or patience to deal with these "type" (katherine brooks, etc) of people in real life. maybe watching this video will help me to understand who these people are, but i didnt even have the time or patience to watch every single minute of this video -brush my teeth, pee, etc. long story short, i can understand why no one cared about her when she was in the hospital, suicide, etc. these "type" of people (extreme extroverts?) seem to have a raw energy from a physically well connected brain and body that are heavily influenced by the commercial values (drugs, technology, etc) of today's society. my guess is that lots of physical exercise and good nutrition, instead of sitting (driving) and smoking, would cure most of her ills. sorry, i forgot, these "type" of people always have more important things to do than exercise and nutrition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very touching and inspirational Film! February 9, 2014
By 
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Love this film, truly touched the heart, its brilliant! It is Raw and Real and nothing but Honesty, which most films and people lack. It takes a whole lot of courage and strength to put yourself out there in the open like Katherine has done in this Film, she is an amazing director and a strong loving person who just keeps giving, she definitely outdid herself. People who do not appreciate or judge this film either do not struggle or are afraid of the truth or would rather hide it. We are human. I really hope this film reaches everyone, it can definitely help and reach people with daily struggles in society today. There isn't much out there to truly help them, not like this. People can and will for sure relate to this film and self healing journey if they are open and can become inspired to be better, stronger and to continue their life journey by helping each other grow. We all have our struggles. I strongly recommend this film! I believe in this movement! Her message in this film is really powerful! We for sure need more Face 2 Face in this world to provide Love and Compassion to one another! We need real connections and interactions to thrive. No one should feel alone in times of struggles or happiness. We are not alone! The connections experienced in the film are very touching and real. Truly admire Katherine for making this film, its exceptional. Watch it for yourself and be open about everything! Pass it on and spread the Love, Give a Hug! I speak highly about this film to people and most agree right away with the Face 2 Face message.. I give it 6 stars!!
