'Point and Shoot' Presents Blurred Lines Between Director and Subject

Publish date:

Director Marshall Curry and subject Matthew VanDyke have an unusual, somewhat uneasy, relationship that brought their documentary Point and Shoot together. VanDyke initially shot the footage of his transformation into a freedom fighter and sought out a documentarian to co-direct it. But Curry eventually decided to license the footage from VanDyke with the caveat that he would be the sole director and creative voice of the project.

As VanDyke tells The Daily Beast, "When I returned with the footage, it was going to be a film about my own military service but I needed for people to take it seriously, otherwise it would look like a campaign commercial if I was the director. I wouldn’t have made it look that way, but people would have been suspicious of it. So I decided to look for a director.”
