UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — A screening of the documentary “Bag It” will be held at 7 p.m. on March 20 in the Flex Theatre of the HUB-Robeson Center at University Park. The event is free and open to the public.
“Bag It” is an award-winning feature-length film that takes a closer look at America’s dependence on plastic. It is part of the film series for Plastic Entanglements, an exhibition organized by the Palmer Museum of Art that explores the complex story of plastic.
The film follows Jeb Berrier, an admitted “everyman,” who brings a single plastic bag home from the grocery store. He proceeded as many Americans do — shoving the bag inside another bag and storing it out of sight under the sink. His journey leads to the question: Are plastic bags really necessary?
