FACE TO FACE
is an immersive documentary that blends years of photojournalism with virtual reality to create a three-act installation. This intimate look at gun injury and human resilience that is based on the life of a mother of two daughters, who wears a facial prosthetic due to near fatal gun injury.
We are making our World Premiere at the  Sheffield Doc/Fest's Alternate Realities Exhibition June 7-12th, 2018.   


This story is not about statistics. The installation is not about entertaining.
The traditional mediums do not feel dated nor do the experimental ones overwhelm.

CREATORS NOTES: 
Working for the Walt Disney company sparked my interests in building stories that blend multiple storytelling methods.

As a woman working in virtual and augmented reality journalism, I am humbled to have been invited by photojournalist Michelle Gabel to collaborate and create the more avant-garde vision for this intense, and unbelievable story. I believe FACE TO FACE embodies a new genre of compassionate, non-fiction storytelling, and that it will leave an impact on every single guest we host at Sheffield Doc/Fest this June.

I dream about the opportunity to share FACE TO FACE here in the United States.

I thrive on telling stories about remarkable, everyday people. Sometimes I enter their lives for just a few moments. Other times it's for months or years, like in the case of FACE TO FACE, which is a story I have been documenting the past four years.

I am in debt to the overwhelming amount of time and energy that the family featured in FACE TO FACE has spent welcoming me into their lives. I believe in sharing stories that elicit empathy and wonder, and FACE TO FACE balances the traditional mediums with the experiential ones in ways I never even knew existed or imagined. It will be thrilling to watch years of partnership and friendship culminate on the world stage at Sheffield this June.
