Good evening everyone. My daughter has some questions that i could not answer. So here goes. Question: How would cling film repel from itself? Anyone help here?

If you can apply the same static charge to two pieces of plastic, they will repel each other.
However, if air cannot easily get into the gap, the plastic film will not separate easily.
