Wherein Werner Herzog gives voice to a lonely plastic bag

Werner Herzog is responsible for many strange, wonderful things. Everything he's involved in is kissed by a brutal beauty–even that first Jack Reacher movie, starring Tom Cruise.

In this video from Future States, Mr. Herzog gives voice to the odyssey of a plastic bag: once loved and then discarded by its maker. For a video that runs just under 19 minutes, it runs through a full gauntlet of emotions, weirdness and existential questions.
