Tribeca Winner ‘Point and Shoot’ Gets U.S. Distribution

The Orchard has acquired U.S. theatrical and digital rights to Marshall Curry’s documentary “Point and Shoot,” which won the documentary Grand Jury Prize at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The film follows Matthew VanDyke, a 27-year-old with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, who leaves his home in Baltimore and sets off on a self-described “crash course in manhood” through the Middle East. He struck a friendship with a Libyan hippie, joined his friend in the fight against dictator Muammar Gaddafi, was captured by Gaddafi forces and held in solitary confinement for six months.

The film will be released theatrically by The Orchard in U.S. markets this fall, and on digital platforms early next year.

Curry has been nominated for Oscars for “Street Fight” and “If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front.”

The deal was negotiated by Danielle DiGiacomo for The Orchard and Andrew Herwitz, president of The Film Sales Company, on behalf of the filmmaker.
