FLUSH - The Documentary free online Nov 15 - 21 in honor of World Toilet Day 2017

Dear SUSANA members,

I wanted to let you know about a resource that will be coming online for World Toilet Day. Set in New York City, it is a deep dive into the theme of "wastewater" and a growing movement to change the way America thinks about its "waste." I hope it will be of interest to you, and can be useful to your World Toilet Day programming. More info below and at www.thepoopproject.org/FLUSH

World Premiere of FLUSH - The Documentary in honor of UN World Toilet Day. Available streaming online, screening all around the world, and as part of World Toilet Day Celebrations in New York City.


Five years ago, 11 Billion gallons of raw sewage overflowed into New York's waters as a result of Hurricane Sandy. This leaves filmmaker Karina Mangu-Ward wondering if the unprecedented storm damage in her Brooklyn neighborhood, the drought out West, and the future of our food supply has a lot to do with how we flush. So she gives herself a challenge: follow one flush from beginning to end. FLUSH - The Documentary is the story of everything that happens next, and the cultural, political, and corporate forces shaping the way we deal with bodily waste in America today.
