Free online Doc Streaming with Ed Begley Jr.

Posted on

I love streaming movies, but sometimes I think I am missing out on cool Q&A sessions because of my reluctance to put on real clothes and leave the house. Well the future is here. The documentary film Bag it is having a free online screening by the Plastic Pollution Coalition on Sunday Nov. 20th at 8:30 pm EST. The actor, activist and awesome Ed Begley Jr. will be hosting a live Q&A with audience members.

Bag it follows a normal guy who makes a resolution to stop using plastic bags at the grocery store. Seems simple enough, right? But this decision leads him down a path that starts in a quiet mountain town (where I used to do theater with the filmmaker!) and goes all over the world looking for where the “away” is that we throw our trash. You will never look at plastic the same way again.

So this Sunday, put on your jammies, pop some corn and stream Bag it!

About April

Hi! My name is April, I live in Los Angeles, California where I am pursuing an acting career and a B.S. online through the University of Wisconsin. A member of the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, I have an agent who sends me out on auditions for television, film and commercials. I have been lucky enough to guest star on Disney, and even to have played a drug addict on A&E. More recently I started a small production company making web series and short films for fun. I just finished my first feature length screenplay, and am beginning work on another. When I was younger I expected to one day make my living solely in the entertainment Industry, however this is proving difficult. There is a lot of competition for fewer and fewer jobs. DVR's, online streaming, reality television, the writer's strike of 2006 and the bad economy have all played a part in the downturn of production. Meanwhile, living in Los Angeles is expensive, and it is difficult to make a living without at least a bachelors degree. It has become clear to me, that in order to continue to pursue my creative goals, I am going to have to focus on a more sustainable lifestyle. A few years ago, I stumbled upon the tiny house movement. Everything about it made sense to me, smaller living for affordability, giving one the time and energy to focus on what they want to do, rather then just survival. As I learned more, the sustainable aspects became important to me, not only for individual sustainability, but for global sustainability, because they are inextricably connected. My hope is to someday build my own tiny house using sustainable principles.

  1. While touring Europe on Bicycle last year I noted, in Europe most stores will not bag at all, they simply slide your goods to the end of the check out and start on the next one. You are expected to bring your own. If you want to buy some bags they have them, but they still don’t help you bag, and there is a place to lock your shopping cart up in the front of most stores, you get a key to carry around with you, and all shopping carts require a euro deposit.
