Doubletime by Stephanie Johnes
Two Carolina jump roping teams head to the Double Dutch finals at the famed Apollo Theater.
Tribeca Film Festival favorite Doubletime is about jumping rope. The documentary follows two disparate teams - one suburban white and one inner-city black - as they train to compete against each other for the very first time. The Bouncing Bulldogs of Chapel Hill, North Carolina and The Double Dutch Forces of Columbia, South Carolina are the two top American teams. Although they train in neighboring states, the Bulldogs and the Forces are in separate leagues and rarely cross paths. The Bulldogs represent the best of gymnastic freestyle jumping found mostly in white suburbia, while the Forces belong to the inner- city African American tradition of Double Dutch. For the first time, both the Bulldogs and the Forces decide to enter a competition at the world famous Apollo Theater called the Holiday Classic. The film features four young athletes who display courage, skills, and charisma as they passionately prepare for the event. Doubletime culminates on stage in Harlem with this rowdy crowd- pleasing contest which features "fusion" routines where Double Dutch is blended with hip- hop dance and music.
