The film features interviews with the world's leading origami artists, including Eric Joisel, a French sculptor whose delicate pieces ranged from the dramatic and ornate to the downright cheeky. Joisel died of lung cancer in October 2010.
Then there's Michael LaFosse, an origami artist with a background in biology. He's been designing his own paper since the '70s. Another interviewee, MIT professor Erik Demaine, specializes in computational origami.
The film also goes far beyond traditional origami, bringing in the postmodern artists ("one fold only") and the anarchists, who folded wildly and whimsically without a plan.
Monday's screening is hosted by AIGA Arizona as part of the group's monthly film series. The film starts at 7:30 p.m. and runs just under an hour long. Tickets are $5 at the door.
