UCLoo Festival

Next month Holy Crap! the film will be shown at the University College of London's Loo festival as part of their initiative to spark creative solutions to the global sanitation crisis.

We are thrilled to have been asked to participate in this wonderful event, and look forward to seeing the results of their Make-a-thon contest!!!

This contest is such a wonderful response to the global sanitation crisis.

In London alone, more than 400 million litres of drinking water are flushed down the toilet every day!! Just imagine how much water is wasted on a daily basis throughout all of the developing world.   What if flush toilets were to become a thing of the past?

What if water-borne disease were to become a thing of the past?  What if the waste itself were to become a vital resource, critical to agricultural development and economic independence from foreign aid?

We can't wait to see what the makers of the Make-a-thon come up with, and will keep you posted as the project unfolds.

Until then, make sure to give thanks for the clean water with which you wash your hands, the warm water with which you bathe your face, and the place you dispose of your personal waste.  Ain't it grand not to have to think about it?

It's really a Global Movement now

Recently I was contacted by a totally cool organization called, "Toilet Hackers".

They're based in New York City and have a mission of ending the global sanitation

*Ending* the global sanitation crisis.

This is so inspiring I can't stand it.  They have put together a team of people who are
moving heaven and earth to make it happen and beginning a revolution for like-minded
people to organize around this mission.

So exciting!!!

Cassandra (Jabola - my amazing co-producer) and I decided last week that it's time to
put the feelers out looking for collaborators to take our project to the next level both in
story-telling and production value.

We really believe this story deserves to be told and told well so if any of you readers
know of anyone who knows of anyone - filmmakers, funders, organizations or earth-and-
justice lovers - who might be interested in supporting this project through to the end,
please let me know.

We are gathering and grouping and beginning the next phase of fund-raising.....

Because come on.  SERIOUSLY!!!  Everyone deserves a safe place to put their body-
by-products.  Why not put those by-products to work restoring soil fertility and
agricultural yield and abating disease and starvation??

Let's do this.
