Documentary feature Point and Shoot on DVD and digital in February

14 January 2015

Winner of the prestigious Best Documentary award at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival, Point and Shoot tells the story of Matt VanDyke, a timid 27-year-old with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, who left home in Baltimore and set off on a self-described "crash course in manhood". He bought a motorcycle, a video camera and began a three-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, Matt joined his new found 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 (Street Fight, If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front) expertly tells this harrowing and sometimes humorous story of a young man’s struggle for political revolution and personal transformation.

Point and Shoot will be released on UK DVD on 16th February 2014 by Spectrum at the RRP of £17.99. The film will be available on digital download from 2nd February 2015.
