This may be the first documentary I’ve ever seen that I thought was too short. It’s about obsessive paper hackers who fold extreme origami. They make paper do things you would never believe. Sheets are folded into impossible shapes, in impossible ways. Some origami unfolds in almost lifelike gestures. The folders use computers, math, craft, art, and sheer will power to turn uncut paper into anything, even all things. I could watch them do this for hours. It’s magic. It’s deep. It will change your mind about paper. They know things ordinary mortals do not. This documentary will bewitch you, making you ask for more.
