Between the Folds

For those of us who do origami, who fold paper for pleasure or for art, or even for profit, it is always a thrill to see our art form appear in the mainstream media.  This year there have been a number of shows in which origami played a peripheral (or occasionally, even a pivotal) role.  But the program which stands head and shoulders above all the dramas which incorporated it a little is the wonderful documentary Between the Folds.  It's a beautiful piece, focussing on several of the worlds best origamists: Lang, Jackson, Palmer, Demaine, Hull, many of whom I am privileged to have met, some of whom I'm privileged to call friend.  They are great people, it's a great movie, Vanessa Gould is a great director, and PBS picked it up to show on their series Independent Lens.
And now, it's in the running for the best documentary of the year in that show: if you'd care to vote for a wonderful piece, you can do so here!

Yours, happy to promote this movie,
