For those of you in Austin, I just saw that “Plastic Bag”, the short video I posted in my previous blog post, will be playing at MonkeyWrench Books on December 19th at 7pm.
“PLASTIC BAG” SCREENING AND CONVERSATION WITH ECOLOGY ACTION
Sunday, December 19, 7pm
Join us for a discussion with members of Ecology Action and screening of
the short film “Plastic Bag.” Ecology Action is a non-profit, worker-run
cooperative educating and empowering people to create a healthier
environment through waste prevention, accessibility to recycling and
cooperation. “Plastic Bag,” by award winning director Ramin Bahrai and
narrated by renowned filmmaker Werner Herzog, follows a bag from grocery
store to landfill and, eventually, to the 500 mile wide North Pacific
Trash Vortex. The monthly “Meet a Community Group” series is put together
to help bring supporters and community members together with local
organizations working on various issues in the Austin area.
