Plastic Bag is a short film by American director Ramin Bahrani that traces the epic, existential journey of a plastic bag (voiced by Werner Herzog) searching for its lost maker, the woman who took it home from the store and eventually discarded it. Along the way, it encounters strange creatures, experiences love in the sky, grieves the loss of its beloved maker, and tries to grasp its purpose in the world.
Plastic Bag is considered one of the best short films of all times. We loved it not only because is very well filmed, with a spectacular photograph, but its theme allows to think about our time.
Also, the film features the voice of the amazing German filmmaker Werner Herzog and an original score by Kjartan Sveinsson of the Icelandic rock band Sigur Rós.
According to OpenCulture, Plastic Bag was one of 11 films released in the Internet Television Service’s “Futurestates” film series exploring “what life might look like in an America of the future.”
