State of Exception

State of Exception

As Rio de Janeiro took to the world stage with preparations for the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Summer Olympics, a community of self-described “urban Indians” organized to fight back against their forced evictions, joining forces with other marginalized groups. A familiar narrative has emerged as these roaming corporate sporting events descend upon metropolises, causing major disruption and corruption to local democracies while displacing the most vulnerable. The resistance continues to grow from country to country, diminishing the power of these conglomerates with activism, independent media coverage and the determination of locals to hold their ground. Spending six years following their plight, Jason O’Hara embedded himself within these communities, steadfastly committed to highlighting the injustices that abound. Now that the spotlight moves on to Russia and Japan for these events, it’s increasingly necessary to witness the battles fought so they don’t end in vain

At first glance, Matthew VanDyke—a shy Baltimore native with a sheltered upbringing and a tormenting OCD diagnosis—is the last person you’d imagine on the front lines of the 2011 Libyan revolution. But after finishing grad school and escaping the U.S. for “a crash course in manhood,” a winding path leads him just there. Motorcycling across North Africa and the Middle East and spending time as an embedded journalist in Iraq, Matthew lands in Libya, forming an unexpected kinship with a group of young men who transform his life. Matthew joins his friends in the rebel army against Gaddafi, taking up arms (and a camera). Along the way, he is captured and held in solitary confinement for six terrifying months. Academy Awa
