Bag It!

It's that time of year again. The holiday season is over, but crowds of people are flocking to Utah for something special: the Sundance Film Festival. Didn't get tickets this year? Don't worry, you can still catch some interesting flicks. We even know about one that is free, and that has an environmental theme.

It is called "Bag It!," a film that follows the story of a man who vows to stop using plastic grocery bags, and in the process examines the other plastics he consumes. It does more than just follow one man's quest, but puts a magnifying glass up to our culture of consumption and the greater environmental issues that this can cause.

You can catch "Bag It!" for free next Tuesday, January 18th, at 7:00 pm at the City Library. The screening is sponsored by the SLC Film Center. It may not be Sundance, and you probably won't see any celebrities, but this upcoming event promises to broaden your perspective on consumption and (of course) plastic bags.
