The documentary Between the Folds looks at the art and the science of origami. Our blog has had an entry on the mathematics of origami previously; here is the chance for an extended look. The film debuts on PBS in December 2009. There apparently are also free screenings at various locations around the US. A description from PBS’s website:
Think origami is just paper planes and cranes? Meet a determined group of theoretical scientists and fine artists who have abandoned careers and scoffed at graduate degrees to forge new lives as modern-day paper folders. Together they reinterpret the world in paper, creating a wild mix of sensibilities towards art, science, creativity and meaning.
The film has won numerous accolades at various film festivals; check out the webpage for the production company.
