Bouncing bulldogs! Doubletime documentary at the Carolina

There's been a fair bit of chatter about this on local listservs. For those of you who missed the talk, here's the skinny.

Doubletime is a documentary about a jump rope competition at the Apollo Theater in Harlem between the Chapel Hill based Bouncing Bulldogs and various other teams, including South Carolina's Double Dutch Forces.

Now, i haven't seen the movie myself. It's only been shown in a couple of places. And tomorrow's show (7:30pm, 10 bucks; $25 will get you into a special reception that starts at 6) is a one-off. You probably won't get a chance to see it again locally until the Full Frame Festival in the spring. But people i know who have seen it say it's killer, and the reviews are certainly encouraging.

Plus, there will be a special performance by the Bulldogs on stage after the screening. I can think of few more "Durham" ways to spend a Friday night.

Trailer here.

(By the way, Blade Runner has been held over until at least Feb. 7 if you haven't seen it yet, or if you need seconds.)



  • Oh! We're all gathered around the youtube yelling "Don't leave us hanging!" Gotta see it now.
