Two-time Academy Award nominee Marshall Curry (“Street Fight,” “If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front”) is returning to theaters at the end of the month with “Point and Shoot,” a thrilling non-fiction feature that won the Best Documentary Award at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year.
