Synopsis

Two-time Oscar® nominee Marshall Curry celebrates his 10th anniversary with POV with the amazing tale of Matt VanDyke. A timid 26-year-old with obsessive-compulsive disorder, Matt left home in Baltimore in 2006 for what he called a "crash course in manhood." He bought a motorcycle and a video camera and set off to film himself on a multi-year, 35,000-mile odyssey through North Africa and the Middle East. When revolution broke out in Libya, he joined the rebels fighting Muammar Gaddafi, but was captured, sending his adventure in a frightening new direction. Point and Shoot joins Matt's wild ride, exploring how in the age of the selfie we use cameras not just to capture our stories, but to craft them. A co-production of Marshall Curry Productions, American Documentary | POV and ITVS. Winner, Best Documentary Feature Award, 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.
