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


A fascinating documentary that really brings the depth of the art to light. It also features an excellent showcase of some mind-blowing origami and the theories, concepts, techniques and inspirations of the folders who create the pieces. It's a must-see whether you're a fine-tuned, expert folder or you've never done anything more with paper than write on it.

This was a really beautiful documentary that made amazing, colorful statements about art, science, and math (as well as humanity) within its stark, placid, honest, and thoughtful narrative.

Science and art combine in this documentary about... folding paper. Yeah, I was curious. It's a bit slow at the beginning, but gets more interesting as it progresses - revealing how origami is changing out world. I'd only recommend it if you're a big fan of the arts and documentaries. Not for the average viewer.
