A moving and inspirational film
14 April 2009 | by babayardSee all my reviews

I expected to be introduced to a world of origami that went beyond my casual acquaintance of it. What I was unprepared for and moved by was how far beyond "beauty" and "technique" the pursuit of this art can take us. I thought this film was crafted in such a way as to gradually intensify the effect of discovering ever deeper meaning in the art and science of folding. Each artist portrayed approach their work with a passion and clarity that leads to greater discovery; their philosophical concepts derived from the methods to their art making is inspiring. The film is a perfect blend of informative storytelling and artistic inspiration.
