I came across this film on the PBS website when I was looking for information for my middle school classes. Each quarter I teach my students a little origami. I decided to show the film to my class after we finished making origami cranes. It was incredible to see their reactions. It is often very difficult to get middle school students engaged or excited about anything in the classroom. So, to see their eyes wide and their mouths closed while watching the film was a real treat. My 6th graders were particularly awe-struck. There were lots of nudges, fingers pointed at the screen, and "Whoa"s.

Some of the dialogue and concepts were certainly over their heads, but they were still visibly inspired and engaged by the feats accomplished with paper. I would recommend it for any age range.

too many numbers

At first I liked it, but
after a few folds I didn't
understand it.
Wasn't what I expected.

Comments about PBS Between the Folds DVD:

It's amazing to see the amount of pre folding planning and calculations done to create their exotic paper creations. A very interesting DVD.

My nephew is a top origami artist and (not on this DVD) and I know realize the work he has to put in planning his paper folded creations.

I've been wanting my own copy for some time after viewing this on PBS. Finally I have my own copy, and it's a treasure. Anyone who has not witnessed Between the Folds has missed an incredible experience.

Between the Folds is an excellent, well researched and comprehensive exploration of origami...with expert personal expressions. Sensitive to meaningful aspects of this art, there was a spiritual feeling about origami and it's artists
