Declan Hill, author of The Fix: Soccer and Organized Crime: "A chilling and eerie portrait of the effects of match-fixing. Done superbly on a budget of pennies. One wonders and waits for Christopher's next work!"

Jim Jarmusch: "With CRIME SCENE GREENPOINT, Christopher Arcella has crafted a mysteriously dramatic visual poem just from looking out his window (and down from his rooftop). Many have done less with much more!"

dystopian science fiction
In a world where citizens have willingly waived any right to digital privacy, circuited interactive contact lenses have become the standard mobile device. The Connect-Lens, as it’s called, gives the watchful eye of corporate governance a clear view into every personal detail of an entire society.
Those observed straying from the route of the model citizen face steep fines and social isolation to herd them back towards what is known as the People’s Path. A young surveillance technician named Fio avidly supports and evangelizes this system until the day he is placed under suspicion for a crime he didn’t commit. The charges against him aren’t based on his own actions, but statistically probable guilt. His struggles to escape the consequences of his own data trail weave a cautionary tale that could soon be a scenario in our own hyper-connected world.
