The Made in NY Media Center by IFP is thrilled to be part of BKLN DESIGNS this year.  On Sunday, May 11th come check out an award-winning documentary that reinterprets the world in paper followed by a Q&A with the inspiring director, Vanessa Gould, as well as a one of kind origami workshop with master paperfolder Sok Song.  On top of that, don't miss our simply sublime new cafe, Cuper!

SYNOPSIS:

GREEN FUSE FILMS' award–winning documentary Between the Folds chronicles the stories of ten fine artists and intrepid theoretical scientists who have abandoned careers and scoffed at hard–earned graduate degrees—all to forge unconventional lives as modern–day paperfolders.

As they converge on the unlikely medium of origami, these artists and scientists reinterpret the world in paper, and bring forth a bold mix of sensibilities towards art, expressiveness, creativity and meaning. And, together these offbeat and provocative minds demonstrate the innumerable ways that art and science come to bear as we struggle to understand and honor the world around us—as artists, scientists, creators, collaborators, preservers, and simply curious beings.

"Luminously photographed" with a "haunting" original score featuring the Budapest Symphony Orchestra, the film paints an arresting portrait of the mysterious creative threads that bind us all–fusing science and sculpture, form and function, ancient and new.
