Face 2 Face is a feature-length documentary that follows the 11,000-mile cross-country voyage of Emmy-winning director, 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, in the summer of 2011 Katherine journeyed into the homes and lives of her virtual “friends” in an adventure that would change, and maybe even save her life.
