Toronto, Canada - various locations

Hot Docs will be holding three screenings of Point and Shoot, a documentary by Oscar-nominated director Marshall Curry. The film follows the story of Matthew VanDyke, a young man from Baltimore with obsessive-compulsive disorder, who embarked on a solo motorcycle journey across North Africa and the Middle East in 2007. VanDyke’s dream was to make an adventure film, but he found himself joining forces with rebels in the Libyan Desert seeking to oust Moammar Gadhafi. He was soon captured and placed in solitary confinement for six months.

The screenings will take place on April 30 at the Isabel Bader Theatre, May 1 at the TIFF Bell Lightbox and May 3 at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema. CJFE will be giving away eight tickets to the screenings, so stay tuned for details.
