ABOUT THE FILM

A playfulness happens when yarn is taken out of the house and knitted into monumental equipment for children and circuses, put into parks, used to transform people in the ocean, and brighten street walls and lamp-posts. InYarn, the playfulness becomes rhapsodic when it is coupled with the light touch in the music of Örn Eldjàrn and Samuel Andersson and in the experimental animation of Una Lorenzen. The lightness of touch in the artists involved with yarn on and off screen gives play the power to communicate unexpectedly unified messages from places as disparate as Japan, Italy, Poland, and Iceland.
