|Exploring the science, art, creativity, and ingenuity of origami, Between the Folds chronicles the stories of ten leading paperfolders and their works of art. The game "Match the Folds" presents three finished works of origami alongside the fold pattern for one of them, and challenges you to correctly pair before-and-after. Behind-the-scenes content includes the "making of" this hour-long documentary, and statements by the first-time independent filmmaker. With links to the origamists, events on paper-folding sponsored by the Mathematical Association of America, and more. See also the site by the filmmakers Green Fuse Films.|
