Point & Shoot is the story of director and star Shawn Regruto as he makes his way in Manhattan as an in-demand fashion photographer. Splicing together his photos, home videos, and new footage, Regruto blurs the line between fiction and reality in an attempt to capture fashionistas setting trends and becoming famous in New York City. In the film, Shawn falls in love with accomplished model Athena (Athena Currey). Each part of their relationship is captured on film including talking-head interviews done directly into the camera. As their love grows, the film delves more deeply into the sometimes dark world of fashion and photography. The film includes a cast made up of a who's who of the downtown fashion scene including Carmen Kass and Julie Ordon. Voyeuristic and often unsettling, Point & Shoot builds to an inevitable but exciting climax leaving the viewer to ponder how we think about beauty and power in America.
