The film really took off for me when the artists in the field examine the need to move into more philosophical directions

Audience Reviews for Between the Folds

Though I didn't care for the narrator (whom I'm assuming is also the director), this is actually a fascinating collection of all the different fields involved in something as "simple" as origami.

*On netflix streaming*

I didn't expect much from a PBS documentry on oragami. I was amazed by the skill of these artist. This is a art medium for a genius and as a fan of art I believe this form takes more techical skill than anything else. I totally buy into how the artist explain their art, even the abstract stuff. As a art student you some times feel like artist BS through there work. All these artist are very intelligent (one is the youngest MIT professor ever) and are interesting on a intelectual level. I actually looked up some oragami on the internet after watching this a did some.
