Filmmaker Ramin Bahrani‘s short film Plastic Bag, which debuted at the Venice Film Festival, is now playing at the New York Film Festival and will soon be available online.  It’s 18 minutes long and features narration by Werner Herzog.

From Flavorwire:

Here lies the increasingly apparent message (Herzog: “I wish you had created me so I could die”) of an ecological PSA that’s still poetic and quite potent, one bolstered by Sigur Rós keyboardist Kjartan Sveinsson’s lush score. Happily, you’ll be able to watch it online in the near-future since it’s one of the 11 films that make up Futurestates, a new series commissioned by The Independent Television Service (ITVS).

This project adds to my ever-growing collection of evidence that Iranian-Americans love trash.
