Loving Annabelle director Katherine Brooks should have had it all: sex appeal, great career, endless possibilities. Instead she landed in the hospital having life-changing surgery, and after realizing she hadn’t had a visitor (let alone a hug) in a month — even though she had reached the 5,000-friend max on Facebook — she tried to kill herself. She lived but gained a higher purpose: to connect with 50 of her Facebook friends and conduct an experiment on human interaction in the age of technology. What it turned out to be, though, is Brooks's own Easy Rider — her journey of self-discovery across the U.S., often by seeing her reflection in the lives of the people she knew very little about until this journey. She dreams that it will change viewers, too: “My hope is that after seeing Face2Face,” Brooks tells us, “viewers will be inspired to connect more through human interaction than social media.” July 14, 2 p.m., Harmony Gold.
