Calling to mind Paradise Lost in its quest to re-open a murder conviction, Scenes of a Crime looks at the high-profile case of a child’s death in upstate New York. The filmmakers uncover troubling video footage from a 10-hour police interrogation that led to a disputed confession. Winner of the Full Frame Grand Jury Prize, the film pieces together fresh evidence and testimony like a masterful detective story.
