Sarasota Herald-Tribune “Current (Reprise)” preview

Jay Handelman of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune  wrote this nice article on "Current (Reprise)":

‘Current (Reprise)’ captures artistic look at ticker-tape parade

When he filmed a ticker-tape parade in lower Manhattan in 2000 honoring the New York Yankees for beating the New York Mets in the World Series, his interest was less in saluting the sports heroes than in capturing an artistic representation of a flood of paper flowing down onto the narrow streets.  He turned his footage into the short film “Current,” which also became part of a video installation.

He had no idea it would be the last ticker-tape parade before the World Trade Center was destroyed in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, or that it would be eight years before ticker tape (or reams of paper) would once again flow down on the Canyon of Champions.

When the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl in 2008, Doyle heard there would be a parade and he rushed to get to New York in time to capture it on film. It was the start of a sequel that he calls “Current (Reprise),” which will be shown at the Sarasota Film Festival at 8 p.m. April 12 and 3:15 p.m. April 13 before the full length documentary “Five Weddings and a Felony.”
