What the FLUSH?
Director Karina Mangu-Ward has a hunch that the unprecedented damage from Superstorm Sandy, the drought out West, and the future of our food supply have a lot to do with how we flush. So she gives herself a challenge: follow one flush from beginning to end. FLUSH 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.
World Toilet Day
In 2013, the United Nations officially declared Nov. 19 as World Toilet Day—an opportunity to honor the importance of effective sanitation, and raise awareness for the 40% of the world living without a safe, dignified place to "go." This year, we’re inviting citizens all over the world to lift the lid and #FollowTheFlush.
Celebrate Nov. 19 with a premiere screening and World Toilet Day Party!
2-3pm: Tinkle Power Happy Hour, featuring a welcome from the Jamaican Toilet Summit and from Jack Sim, World Toilet Day founder and keynote speaker at this year's World Toilet Summit. Learn more about local issues and shmooze with representatives from NYC H2O, Faiths For Safe Water, The Peggy Lillis Foundation and more, plus product giveaways from Squatty Potty. (Guests subject to change.)
3-4pm: NYC Premiere screening of FLUSH
4-5pm: Livestreamed panel featuring director Karina Mangu-Ward, The POOP Project's Shawn Shafner, Leif Percifield of DontFlush.Me, and retired engineer Robert Adamski.
