MIPTV Picks ’09 – Between the Folds (Best in Show)

Anyone who thinks of origami - the Japanese art of paper folding - as a quaint yet relatively unimportant pastime will have their preconceptions altered considerably by this doc. Spotlighting 10 artists and theoretical scientists, all of whom are working with origami, the film artfully connects the dots between the enigma of creativity and scientific thought.

Anyone who thinks of origami – the Japanese art of paper folding – as a quaint yet relatively unimportant pastime will have their preconceptions altered considerably by this doc.
Spotlighting 10 artists and theoretical scientists, all of whom are working with origami, the film artfully connects the dots between the enigma of creativity and scientific thought. Sculptors and physicists discuss how they fell under the spell of paper folding, illuminating the movie’s main theme, that of transformation.

The takeaway? Just as a blank square of paper can, in the right hands, transform into a swan, so too can a human being discover more depth in him or herself through the creative process.
