The lost roll
So do you remember this post from January? It concerned a viral video about a roll of film lost in a snowy park in Brooklyn and found by a skier and budding filmmaker, who then embarked on a stated mission to find the owners of the lost pictures. He develops the film, finds the pictures are all pretty good, and so forth.
A number of people (and some pretty major media outlets) found the whole thing convincing; I didn't believe it. I could be wrong, of course, but it just didn't quite have the ring of truth to me.
Well, there's either been a wonderful resolution to the saga, or else a savvy continuation of the fiction, however you decide to look at it. The filmmaker heads to Europe, stays with a bunch of new friends he met on the internet, and at last encounters the person he's seeking.
I'm still not buying into all this, but quite possibly that's just me. And you might enjoy the saga anyway.
