Robert J. Lang talking about the origami documentary, Between The Folds:
I think at the heart one of the things that makes us human, that’s both our strength and our weakness, is a need to change things. It’s also the heart of the appeal of origami. Exploring the surprising magic of just how far you can change that square only by folding it.
What’s remarkable about these documentaries is how people can draw you into their obsessions. I remember being drawn in by Man on Wire, Wordplay, The Cruise, and more. It’s the director’s ability to capture passion, revealing how far people will go for change. In this case, for squares of paper.
