Today, in Algebra II, I received a lovely little surprise, the opportunity to forgo mathematics and watch a movie.  A documentary film called Between the Folds, this cinematic treat was a surprising trip through the world of modern origami.  It depicted the blending of mathematics and art through paper folding.  While watching the film, I lusted after a few sturdy squares of paper so I could begin the fantastic journey that was being shown on screen.  The film fairly depicted the world of origami by showing traditional origami, wet folding, more edgy artistic origami, and mathematical origami in  a stunning and interesting way.  With amazing colors and incredibly complex technical displays one easily falls in love Between the Folds.
