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.

As curator Laurent Bardèche says, "Brian Doyle operates by a distancing of man, a real work 'archeology' of our present."

Dystopie met l’accent sur la notion de ‘déplacement’ fonctionnel ou comment les vidéos choisies, à travers un travail de montage, décalent la vision ‘normale’, l’idée préconçue que nous pouvons nous faire, a priori, de ce qu’est un paysage, un site naturel ou urbain, de sa destination, pour attirer notre attention sur l’une de ses fonctions cachées. Les deux vidéos ‘The Light’ et ‘Launch’ de l’artiste américain Brian Doyle, présentées dans ce programme, abordent, chacune à leur manière, le thème d’une nature détachée de l’homme dont il ne subsiste que quelques traces de civilisation. Brian Doyle entreprend à la manière d’un ‘chercheur’, sur le double mode de l’étude historique et psycho-sociale, de révéler les mécanismes sous-jacents de résistance de notre humanité au doute métaphysique, à l’inconnu d’une nature qui lui demeure insondable et hostile. Pour l’artiste, en dépit de ses découvertes technologiques et de l’avènement d’un confort quotidien rassurant, l’humanité demeure plongée dans une nuit technologique profonde (‘The Light’), idée à laquelle elle ne cesse de consacrer tous ses efforts dans le but d’en dominer les paramètres inconnus (‘The Launch’). Brian Doyle opère ainsi, par une mise à distance de l’homme, un véritable travail ‘d’archéologie’ de notre présent.
