A young man on a 35,000-mile journey across Northern Africa and the Middle East to uncover personal freedom serendipitously finds himself joining 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.
This film, directed by two-time nominee of the Best Documentary Award Marshall Curry, won Best Documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival.
“A gripping non-fiction thriller. Riveting… suspenseful, densely edited… an extraordinary and quietly disturbing film.”
-David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
