Free screeing of the award-winning documentary "Bag It"

7 p.m. at Star Hall (159 E Center St)

"Americans use 60,000 plastic bags every five minutes - single-use disposable bags that we mindlessly throw away. But where is "away?" Where do the bags and other plastics end up, and at what cost to our environment, marine life and human health? Bag It follows "everyman" Jeb Berrier as he navigates our plastic world. Jeb is not a radical environmentalist, but an average American who decides to take a closer look at our cultural love affair with plastics. Jeb's journey in this documentary film starts with simple questions: Are plastic bags really necessary? What are plastic bags made from? What happens to plastic bags after they are discarded? Jeb looks beyond plastic bags and discovers that virtually everything in modern society-from baby bottles, to sports equipment, to dental sealants, to personal care products-is made with plastic or contains potentially harmful chemical additives used in the plastic-making process. When Jeb's journey takes a personal twist, we see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up with us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now."

The Utah Film Circuit: Moab, an initiative of the Grand County Public Library and the Utah Film Center, is offering a monthly screening series featuring the best dramatic and documentary films from around the world. Funding for this screening of "Bag It" has been provided by Moonflower Market and Canyonlands Community Recycling. Utah Film Circuit screenings are made possible by Zions Bank and the George S. and Dolores Dore Eccles Foundation. For more information about "Bag It," visit www.bagitmovie.com.
