This 18-minute film may sound dumb to you. Who wants to see a film about a plastic bag, that does sound dumb. I found it to be beautiful and clever. Werner Herzog is the voice of the plastic bag. Just watch it before you pass judgment, ok? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDBtCb61Sd4
"Did my maker exist or had I created her in my mind? Why were my mountains of joy so brief? And yet, like a fool, I still have hope I will meet her again. And if I do, I will tell her just one thing: I wish you had created me, so that I could die." Powerful stuff!
It sounds ridiculous, but this short film following the life and inner dialog of a plastic bag is both moving in a very human way and thought-provoking as a means of addressing the unsustainability of single-serve plastics. Oh, and Werner Herzog is the voice of the bag.
This is one of the most enjoyable shorts I've ever seen. The message is so profound, yet very simple. When Herzog delivered the final line about what he'd say to his maker I almost cried. I prefere this to any Herzog directorial piece. Lovely!! :)
