Quotes

Tilde Björfors: Then I asked myself, what materials should I use for the show? I tried to find a message. I always try to connect the material to the meaning of life. It should be something worth achieving, which can live for a long time. At that time, I was working with researchers, philosophers, neurologists, psychologists and theologists, and all of them said in their own way; the meaning of life is when you stop wanting or striving - you lose the meaning of life. To strive is the meaning of life.

Short, unsatisfying
2 March 2017 | by poikkeus1See all my reviews

The New York Times claimed - with a little irony - that YARN was the best documentary film on the subject. Of course, there aren't any other docs on the subject - which is unfortunate, since there are so many possibilities for the film.

The potential for a for a film like YARN is vast, but - sequence by sequence - the final result is a bit underwhelming. All of the segments are united by an artistic/conceptual approach. In Iceland, Barcelona, Japan, and Cuba, a disparate community of artists roll out their modest installations, which range from an astonishing woven playground to a bland woven mermaid costume.. The artists' sentiments are sincere but mostly ponderous.

YARN may be the best documentary yet on the subject, but it's not a particularly good one.
