I bought sawed off shotguns and kept them under my clothes for self defense.

Using footage shot by Matthew Van Dyke (also the subject of the documentary), Marshall Curry’s Point and Shoot is a riveting portrait of one young man’s experience on the front lines of the 2011 Libyan revolution. As part of his self-proclaimed “crash course in manhood,” Van Dyke undergoes a number of harrowing adventures, including being captured and held in solitary confinement for 6 long months.

Curry skillfully captures Matthew’s remarkable story, in addition to exploring our culture’s obsession with self-documentation.
