The next 18 minutes and 32 free seconds of your life need to be spent watching this incredible, beautiful short film, Plastic Bag by Ramin Bahrani (Man Push Cart, Chop Shop, Goodbye Solo).

Struggling with its immortality, a discarded plastic bag (voiced by Werner Herzog) ventures through the environmentally barren remains of America as it searches for its maker.

It’s a post-apocalyptic film about a plastic bag voiced by Werner Herzog. It played at Venice, Telluride, New York, and South By Southwest. I can’t make it any better by typing anything else, just watch it. Fullscreen. Watch it now.

Thanks to Martin Blank on the boards for point me to this.
