Yarn

When: Sun., Aug. 14 2016

With every season comes a new trend in fashion, and this summer gave rise to crochet. From tops to swimsuits, yarn is on the hot list, so it would seem like an apt time to release a film about the trendiest material of the moment. The new documentary film Yarn beautifully educates viewers on an art form most probably still associate with their grandmothers. Following three artists and an avant-garde circus troupe, director Una Lorenzen artfully weaves these different narratives into a broader tapestry — wink wink — that challenges preconceived notions about yarn, crochet and needlework. The film shows today at 1:30 p.m. at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Tickets are $9, $8 for CMA members, seniors and students. (Immerman)
