Migrating plastic bags have become a major environmental problem in the Pacific Ocean and Minnesota’s metro area streams and lakes. Here, “The Magnificent Plastic Bag,” a superb mockumentary produced by Heal the Bay (Santa Monica) is tagged with a Timid Video Theater (Eden Prairie) take in the metro region. Both parody the grand, reverent, wow moments of, say, a PBS documentary on wildebeest migrations in the Serengetti.
The motivation of the video presentation is to remind people to pick up after themselves and to pass legislation that will ban plastic bags.
