Event Description:

Bag It

The Mary B. Martin School of the Arts, in cooperation with South Arts 2012-13 Southern Circuit of Independent Filmmakers, presents Bag It, a documentary film.

Try going a day without plastic. Plastic is everywhere and infiltrates our lives in unimaginable and frightening ways. Bag It, a touching and often flat-out-funny film, follows everyman Jeb Berrier, who is not a tree-hugger, as he embarks on a global tour to unravel the complexities of our plastic world. What starts as a film about plastic bags evolves into a wholesale investigation into plastic, and its effect on our waterways, oceans, and our own bodies. Bag It shows how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up with us, and what we can do about it.

Following a screening of the film, Narrator/Actor Jeb Berrier and the audience will engage in a discussion about the film. A reception with the filmmaker follows.

The 2012-13 Southern Circuit is a program of South Arts. Southern Circuit screenings are funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and local partner organizations.
