A plastic bag seeks its destiny
If you’ve got 18 minutes to spare, check out Ramin Bahrani’s moving biography of a plastic bag:
“Plastic Bag” is part of the Future States project, which, in 11 episodes, envisions the future by asking what will become of America in 5, 25, even 50 years.
The tragically existential tale is perfectly voiced by Werner Herzog (of *Woyzeck*, *Fitzcarraldo*, and *Grizzly Man* fame), and ends on a dystopian, haunting note regarding immortality. A must-see elegy.
