Meet the artists who are redefining the tradition of knit and crochet, bringing yarn out of the house and into the world. Exploring creativity along with space and environment, YARN follows circus performers, wool graffiti artists, and interactive designers as they reinvent our relationship with this colorful threaded tradition. From the windswept hills of Iceland to the warm waters of the Caribbean and beyond, director Una Lorenzen weaves a visually-striking look at the women behind one of modern art's hottest trends.
After premiering at the Göteborg Film Festival in Sweden, YARN had its U.S. debut at SXSW and has been hailed by GirlTalkHQ as a “brilliant film” and “must-see documentary.”
“You have almost certainly never seen a better documentary on yarn than YARN... thread and string should be jealous.” –The New York Times
