After watching Ramin Bahrani short Plastic Bag, I guarantee you’ll never look at one the same way ever again. The film does such a masterful job personifying the main character that you end up feeling genuine emotion for its plight. Here’s a bit from the synopsis:
This short film by American director Ramin Bahrani (Goodbye Solo) 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.
The ending of the movie hits pretty hard with its message — so take a few minutes to enjoy this beautiful short.
