GREEN FUSE FILMS' award-winning documentary, Between the Folds, chronicles
the stories of 10 fine artists, theoretical mathematicians and intrepid
scientists who have abandoned conventional jobs and scoffed at hard-earned
graduate degrees - all to forge lives as modern-day paperfolders.
As these offbeat and varied characters converge on the unusual medium of
origami, they reinvent an ancient art, and illustrate the innumerable ways
that creativity and ingenuity come to bear in the age-old effort to
understand and honor the world around us - as artists, scientists, creators,
collaborators, preservers, and simply curious beings.
With "breathtaking" cinematography and a "haunting" original score featuring
the Budapest Symphony Orchestra, the film paints an arresting portrait of
the mysterious artistic and scientific threads that fuel these remarkable
minds, bringing forth a rich mix of sensibilities towards art, abstraction,
science, creativity, and meaning.
Official Selection of over 25 international film festivals.
