Paper Boat - Moments in the Life of a Book

Web (Full Length) – 2015

Half-hour documentary Paper Boat uses off-screen interviews to follow the process of creating a book, from idea to book store. The chapters are built on interviews with an author; editor; designer; a printer and a binder; and finally a bookseller and a librarian — the latter talks about libraries as places of welcome and acceptance. The film's title was inspired by Gregory Kan's poetry collection This Paper Boat.  Writer and ex librarian Alex Mitcalfe Wilson's debut film was one of three "advocating for art on the margins", which debuted on website The Lumière Reader.

I think the library is a very welcoming place. It's almost like a second home for many people; not just older people that are perhaps lonely and they want to go there and read, and feel the company of others; but also homeless people that feel really cold and uncomfortable, are still welcome and read. You'd be surprised — many of them read very intellectual stuff.
– Librarian Carla Gullichsen
