"Bag It", by Suzan Beraza

Screened on 17 October  18:30 - 21:00

Runtime: 78'

BagIt linkBag It  follows "everyman" Jeb Berrier as he navigates our plastic world. He 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. 

Followed by a Q&A with:

  • Isabelle Durant - European deputee, vice-president of the European Parliament
  • Joan Marc Simon - Executive Director of the organisation Zero Waste Europe
  • Chris Van den Bilcke - Head of UNEP's liaison Office to the EU in Brussels. 

The film is organised in partnership with the Green-Up Film Festival and the VUB.
