The ACC and EEC host screening of ‘Plastic Bag Store: The Film’

The Andersonville Chamber of Commerce (ACC) and the Edgewater Environmental Coalition (EEC) are pleased to co-host an in-person screening and discussion of Plastic Bag Store: The Film, part of the 11th annual One Earth Film Festival.

Plastic Bag Store: The Film, by Robin Frohardt is dynamic series of stories that traverse ancient history, the present day, and a future dystopia, employing inventive puppetry, humor and craft to explore how the plastic waste we leave behind today might be misinterpreted by future generations.

The feature film will be preceded by the stop-motion, 1.5-minute film “Plastic Ecosystem” by Stefie Gan, an Official Selection from the One Earth Young Filmmakers Contest.

This thoughtfully creative film exploring the future impact of plastic waste will be screened Friday, March 11 at 5:30 pm at Philadelphia Church, 5437 N. Clark St. in Andersonville. Recommended for ages 12+.

Tickets ($8 suggested donation) are available HERE.

Comments Andersonville Chamber of Commerce Director of Business Services and District Manager David Oakes, “We are thrilled to be able to take part in the One Earth Film Festival and showcase an incredible film that highlights a very serious problem that touches all of us. We actively reflect the environmentally conscious ethos of Andersonville by spearheading initiatives like Clark Street Composts with WasteNot Compost, Single Use Plastic Drives and planting educational Native Planter along SSA 22.”

The 11th annual One Earth Film Festival runs from March 4 – 13, 2022, featuring 17 thoughtfully curated film events that will be streamed online, with a number of in-person screenings at Chicago-based venues.
