An origami tale of a skillful paper folder who could shape the world with his hands.

Would do anime master Hayao Miyazaki proud.

I can honestly say I've never seen anything quite like Papiroflexia. It was made by Joaquin Baldwin, who also created the adorably creepy Sebastian's Voodoo. Both are clearly the works of a major artist with a unique voice.

Papiroflexia concerns a practitioner of origami, the ancient Japanese art of paper folding. Most of the objects in his apartment are made out of paper, including his cat. He resolves to do something about all the noisy in the city he lives in. He folds cars into antelope, planes into birds, and ultimately the entire city into wilderness.

The film seems to be pushing a back-to-the-earth anarchist philosophy, but it doesn't shove it down your throat or anything. The exquisite score (by Nick Fevola) and Baldwin's pastel-colored animation lend the film a gentle, strangely comforting quality. This is a wonderful movie, one whose story and style would do anime master Hayao Miyazaki proud.
