Christopher Arcella directed a lovely, haunting documentary entitled Crime Scene Greenpoint we screened at Rooftop in 2009, and the disturbing soccer doc I Don’t Blame the Beautiful Game, screened in 2010. His debut feature, Giver Taker Heartbreaker, is a jazzy, bizarre, semi-absurdist black comedy, in the vein of early Jarmusch. Arcella is seeking finishing funds on Kickstarter. If you dig the vibe of the off-kilter trailer, support this unique project and daring upcoming filmmaker.

If you want to support independent cinema, there’s no better way than at Rooftop Films via Kickstarter. For more Rooftop alums on Kickstarter, click the “For Filmmakers” link in the navigation bar, and come to the Rooftop Films / Kickstarter Film Festival on July 9, 2010.
