About the Film
In 2006, Matt VanDyke, a timid 28-year-old with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, left home in Baltimore and set off on a self-described “crash course in manhood”. He bought a motorcycle and 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 in Libya, Matt joined his 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, tells this harrowing and sometimes humorous story of a young man’s struggle for political revolution and personal transformation.
I can't remember the last time I saw a documentary so piercing, ground-breaking and revolutionary. The bravery of Matt VanDyke and the directing skill of Marshall Curry makes this an unmissable watch.
Shocking true story!
This is a wonderful and gripping story, unlike other war movies this isn't about just guns and explosions, this documentary runs much deeper. Worth every penny.
