Ramin Bahrani, the New York-based auteur responsible for such indie darlings as “Chop Shop” (2007) and “Goodbye Solo” (2008) shot a curious little short in 2009 called “Plastic Bag.” It follows a plastic shopping bag, voiced by Moving Arts favorite Werner Herzog, on an existential journey. Let me say that again: Werner Herzog plays a plastic bag in search of the meaning of life. Enjoy!
