About the movie

« Filmmaking at its most wondrous. Breathtaking. Mesmerizingly beautiful. Exhilarating »

Between the Folds chronicles the stories of 10 fine artists, theoretical mathematicians and intrepid scientists who have abandoned conventional jobs and scoffed at hard-earned graduate degrees – all to forge lives as modern-day paperfolders.

The film is much more than a loving look at the fascinating, brilliant characters who devote their lives to folding paper. It reveals origami itself as richer and more intricate than you could imagine.
