About Potty Town
“Potty Town: Where Protest Meets Porcelain” is a new documentary that tells the story of Frederick J. “Hank” Robar Sr., and his 25-year-long dispute with the Northern New York town of Potsdam. The film recounts how Robar’s first toilet garden was sown when he reportedly asked the town for a zoning change at one of his properties on Market Street. The request was denied due to traffic concerns, but the town approved a Dunkin’ Donuts franchise to open just three blocks away. This led to the start of a porcelain protest that has now grown across six different properties, with the town making several attempts to uproot the flower-filled potties.
The documentary explores the motivations behind Robar’s decision to create the toilet gardens, and how they’ve evolved over time. Morgan Elliot’s film also delves into the impact of the gardens on the local community and the relationship between the town and Robar. This film is a true story of protest and resilience that will have audiences captivated.
