Biopic film Mr Toilet the World's #2 Man

After founding the World Toilet Organization 19 years ago and also being one of the founding members of SuSanA, my biopic movie Mr Toilet the World's #2 Man will premiere at Toronto's Hotdocs film festival on 27 April.
This film was produced by Lily Zepeda over last 5 years and it depicts how the taboo of toilets was broke through the use of humour leading to the UN General Assembly unanimous adoption of 19 Nov as UN World Toilet Day.

All details and a trailer is available here. Www.mrtoiletfilm.com

Jack,

Great news! PHLUSH will try to get out the word to people in North America about the premiere of Mr Toilet: the World's #2 Man in Toronto on April 27.

HotDocs - the Canadian International Documentary Film Festival looks very prestigious. Congratulations!

I see there are going to be three screenings of your biopic in three different theatres .

Will you be at the film festival? Where else in North America will the film screen? What do we have to do to get a screening?

Let us know. The press kit for the film is very helpful. I hope that people will use it to promote the film.

All the best,
Carol

Toilet availability is a human right and well-designed sanitation systems restore health to our cities, our waters and our soils.

Re: Biopic film Mr Toilet the World's #2 Man

Here is the link to the trailer for this movie:



Looks really good! I didn't know Jack was specificially involving himself in the Clean India Mission (or Swachh Bharat Mission en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swachh_Bharat_mission ). The film mentions "6 million toilets"... plus all the fecal sludge management that comes with that...

It took me a while to understand why the title of the movie called him the "#2 Man". (#2 = number 2 = poo) This might not work so well in other languages, e.g. in German we don't use number 2 for defecation. Also the hashtag does not equate to "number" for everyone. Anyhow, just my two cents worth.

Good luck with the movie, I hope many people get to see it!
