Traditional crafts of crochet and knitting have become one of the hottest movements in modern art. The film crew follows International artists and knitters as they bring yarn to the streets and into our lives in new ways. Starting in Iceland, this quirky and thought-provoking film takes us on a colorful and global journey as we discover how yarn connects us all.
This documentary film travels to: Iceland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Poland, UK, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Hawaii, Cuba, USA, and Canada exploring the endless possibilities of yarn in the world. See why I need to see this film and why it so connects with our Darn Good Yarn community?
And That's A Cut
The film is directed by Una Lorenzen with co-directors Thordur Johsson & Heather Millard. A big fan of Barbara Kinsolver, I was pleased to learn the original prose, "Where It Begins", was written and performed by her! The movie also features four global female artists who knit and crochet!
