Double Double Down: A Tale of Two Friday Posts: The Plastic Bag Mockumentary Experience

In recent years, the world of bio-documentary has achieved new levels of informative, insightful programming. Recent projects, such as Planet Earth, have illuminated mysteries of the deep sea, the harsh Sahara, and the freezing Arctic. Now, the world of bio-documentary turns its watchful gaze to that wayward rogue, that wandering son, the plastic bag.

First, for your viewing pleasure, we bring you The Majestic Plastic Bag.

Breathtaking. Next, we present Plastic Bag by Ramin Bahrani. This emotional exploration of the life of a bag is narrated by none other than Werner Herzog himself. Enjoy.

What will the future researchers and documentary filmmakers discover about the not-so-elusive plastic bag and what will these revelations tell us about ourselves? I don’t know but I hope that Werner Herzog narrates it.
