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.”

Interview with Sarasota magazine SRQ on “Current (Reprise)”

SRQ Magazine interviews Brian Doyle about "Current (Reprise)" during the Sarasota Film Festival:

More Than Ticker Tape

Director Brian Doyle had no idea when he filmed a short documentary about a ticker tape parade in New York in 2000 that he was documenting the last such event before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. He certainly didn’t realize that pictures of paper tape lighting on fire and flying toward the World Trade Center would become such a chilling image.

“It changed the meaning of the film, of course,” Doyle says.

The short documentary “Current” was already on the festival circuit in 2000 before the attacks, but became much a topic of conversation afterward. And its soon-to-chill imagery so fascinated Doyle he decided to do a remake of the documentary.
