Craft-ish Extra: Yarn the Movie Co-Directors



This week we have a special, CRAFT*ish Extra for you! In honor of YARN: the Movie making it’s New York Debut this month, we thought we’d share the audio portion of a short-form interview I did with the film’s co-directors, Thor Jonnson and Heather Millard.


Film info:
The traditional crafts of crochet and knitting have become one of the hottest movements in modern art. We follow a few 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 colourful and global journey as we discover how yarn connects us all.


A Compass Films production (Iceland), in co-production with 2M Film Studio, Poland.
A documentary film that travels to: Iceland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Poland, UK, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Hawaii, Cuba, USA, Canada exploring the endless possibilities of yarn in the world.
