When: Mon., Jan. 26, 6:30-8 p.m. 2015
In Bag It, regular Colorado guy Jeb Berrier pledges to stop using plastic bags — which gets him thinking about single-use plastic stuff and our "culture of convenience" and the 800 pounds of plastic waste generated by the average American annually. He tracks a day in the life of a plastic bag, and explores the negative effects of plastic on birds and sea creatures as well as our food supply, somehow managing to tell this heavy story while maintaining an upbeat and hopeful tone. Bag It screens at 6:30 tonight at Benet Hill Monastery (3190 Benet Lane in Black Forest, benethillmonastery.org, donations welcomed), a presentation of the Rocky Mountain Women's Film Institute. — Mary Jo Meade
