Toilets – A New Era

In one year, humanity produces 720 million tons of excrement and 570 million tons of urine. While a third of humanity remains deprived of decent sanitary facilities, this documentary takes stock of innovations in this area and unravels our prejudices about toilets between humor and scientific rigor. In addition to the challenges related to waste treatment, wasted water and lack of sanitation, director Thierry Berrod also sheds light on the differences in culture around sanitation around the world.
