Hot Docs 2019
DOC NYC, Denver, One World, BendFilm, Calgary Underground
A Singaporean millionaire uses irreverent humor to bring attention to the global sanitation crisis.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Jack Sim wants to talk to you about your toilet. When the charismatic Singaporean millionaire learned that nearly a third of the world doesn’t have access to proper sanitation, he set out to make a difference through his World Toilet Foundation. Cleverly using humor to get attention for his cause, Sim highlights the need for investment in this basic public health issue. Now he’s ready to plunge into his biggest challenge – securing six million toilets as part of India’s sanitation initiative.
