Tonight F4F Radio ends 2011 with quite a bang, as we speak with a prominent director whose film about a taboo lesbian pairing became one of the most enormously successful movies of all time in its genre.  After years in the world of unscripted reality television directing episodes of shows like "The Osbournes", as well as the short films "Finding Kate" and "Outtakes", Katherine Brooks' debut as a feature filmmaker was the 2006 drama "Loving Annabelle", a controversial look at a romance between a boarding school student and her teacher Simone.  The award-winning film instantly became a classic for the LGBT community.  She built on this success with "Waking Madison," which took a serious look at multiple-personality disorder, and the founding of her own production company, Big Easy Pictures.  We'll discuss her entire career up to and including her latest endeavor, "Face 2 Face" (can we call it F2F?), a documentary that follows Katherine's time spent with 50 Facebook friends and premieres in 2012.  I'll be joined by new full-time cohost Kim Pritekel, and just for this special occasion, three-time guest BurningEden.
