Point and Shoot follows Matt VanDyke, a timid 26-year-old with obsessive compulsive disorder, who left home in Baltimore in 2006 and set off on a self-described “crash course in manhood.” He bought a motorcycle and a video camera and began a multi-year, 35,000-mile motorcycle trip through Northern Africa and the Middle East. While traveling, he struck up an unlikely friendship with a Libyan hippie, and when revolution broke out in Libya, Matt joined his friend in the fight against dictator Muammar Gaddafi. With a gun in one hand and a camera in the other, Matt fought in and filmed the war until he was captured by Gaddafi forces and held in solitary confinement for six months. Two-time Academy Award nominated documentary filmmaker Marshall Curry tells this harrowing and sometimes humorous story of a young man’s search for political revolution and personal transformation.
Marshall Curry got his start directing, shooting, and editing with the highly-acclaimed Street Fight (2005), which was nominated for an Emmy and an Academy Award. His next film, Racing Dreams (2009), won numerous awards. Curry’s third documentary, If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front, won the Sundance Film Festival award for Best Documentary Editing and was nominated for an Academy Award. Curry was Executive Producer of Mistaken for Strangers (2013).
