The Attitude of Eachother

Plastic Bag (featuring Werner Herzog)

Posted in Uncategorized by Michael Atallah on March 24, 2010

A member of the 5gyres organization posted this video tonight and I couldn’t help but display it here. It’s a short film titled PLASTIC BAG. A prosaic film about the life of a plastic bag facing its immortality, played by Werner Herzog. Its destiny? To meet its “maker” in the Pacific vortex, where there is no maker… simply 100 million tons of other plastic bags floating on the cusp of a parallel universe with the ecosystem.

Directed by Ramin Bahrani
Narrative voice Werner Herzog
