I have always loved origami. I saw this when I was little and I didn't understand it. Now I have placed a hold and I can't wait to see it again.

This documentary goes beyond mere techniques involved in paper-folding to explore much larger mathematical and artistic implications of origami. Many types of origami artists and teachers provide thoughtful insights throughout the 55 minute film.

The subject is interesting though the delivery is a bit dry.
