Morgan Elliott is a documentary filmmaker and long-time resident of the so-called “North Country” of New York. Going back to his childhood, Elliott had heard the story of Potsdam’s famous toilet garden, the self-styled protest of a resident who claims the village government has mistreated him. The toilets are revered by some, and reviled by others. Elliott waded into the dispute during the pandemic’s early months and emerged with a story that is at once quirky and profound.
