Guerrilla knitters emphasize that art should be about bringing communities together rather than about elite consumerism, and they do this through textile arts, long thrown into the ghetto of "crafting." The film makes an argument for a feminist reconsideration of art and a cultural reconsideration of the importance of yarn--both as story telling and as the basic element for all clothing, an oft overlooked necessity. I would also say the film begins with a celebration of sheep, an animal we really should revere a bit more than we do.
All I can say after watching this is that I wished I could knit faster than I do (am incredibly pokey) and that I was creative enough to bring yarn beauty to my very bland and icky neighborhood.
And yes, have already rec'd this to every knitting friend I have.
