Happening Tonight: “Yarn” The Movie

Happening Tonight: “Yarn” The Movie

Published September 9, 2016

With a title like ‘Yarn: The Movie’, it is not difficult to discern what Compass Films’ latest documentary is going to be about. So let’s start with what it is not about. ‘Yarn’ is not a historical piece. The filmmakers came up with the idea during a discussion over “what would be the next ‘trend,’” director Una Lorenzen explains. ‘Yarn’ is not territorial. The film focuses on four artists, was shot in eleven countries and has had screenings in eight countries, so far. And finally, ‘Yarn’ not a film about your grandmother’s inspiring doily collection. The film is steeped in pressing social issues, especially regarding femininity and the role of females in the art world.

Yarn premiers at Bío Paradís at 18:00 September 8. It will run until September 13.
