A Captain Unafraid is a 2017 documentary film directed and produced by Charlie concerning sailor and adventurer "Dynamite" Johnny O' Brien. Involved in ruction and revolution on manys the foreign shore, in many ways Johnny was a rebel without a cause, that is, until he found his cause in the late 19th century Cuban War Of Independence. The seed for this documentary was planted with Charlie's song "Marine Mambí, Johnny Dynamite."
