The strangest film to premiere at this year's (06) Toronto Film Festival is a new movie all about the history of the toilet.

Film-maker Ari Grief has toured to world learning the history of the toilet and how it's used in countries like China, India, Ireland and America.

And the satirical documentary, FLUSH! OR HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE TOILET, has been so warmly received by the world's steering groups for better restrooms and lavatories, and the quirky project has received endorsements from the World Toilet Organisation and the American Restroom Association, among others.

Grief says, "Because of the recent successes worldwide of documentaries theatrically, it made sense for my next film to be a documentary, but one that could be engaging and entertaining.

"Flush! will appeal to a wide demographic given the universality of the subject matter. Everyone needs to use the toilet one way or another. We're all equal in the eyes of the toilet."
