Between the Folds

“Between the Folds” tells the stories of 10 fine artists and intrepid scientists who abandoned careers and scoffed at hard-earned graduate degrees - all to forge the unconventional life of a modern-day paperfolder. As these offbeat characters converge on the unusual medium of origami, they reinvent an ancient artform, and demonstrate the innumerable ways creativity and ingenuity come to bear as we struggle to understand and honor the world around us – as individuals, artists, scientists, collaborators, preservers, and simply curious beings.
The film opens with several of the world’s best paperfolders – including a clownish, reclusive Frenchman folding caricatures that rival the figures of Daumier and Picasso; and a hyper-realist who walked away from a successful physics career, instead to challenge the physics of a folded square.
