"CITIZEN CAM" is a real TV documentary about the strangest and most disturbing television sucess...But this television is more than realistic: Imagine a TV station founded and driven by the police. Imagine a TV station observing and showing your peers, and all your compatriots. Imagine a TV station where you could produce your own situations. A TV station that would broadcast live in every home 24h a day, images from the local video surveillance cameras. Finally, imagine that this station would not be part of a dictature, but in Europe, in Iceland, a solid, troublefree, indiputable democracy…and above all, imagine, that the people just love this channel!... In "CITIZEN CAM", the TV report crew sent to Reykjavik is interviewing the founder-manager of the channel, head of the local police. He promotes and describes his new media as "the tool of a new democracy"... As a counterpoint, other interviews show all the reactions from the Icelandic viewers; suspicious or fascinated by this video surveillance-channel. Baptised "HumaniTV", the police network is considered by the fans as the one and only public service station !
