Director's Statement

During the Covid-19 global pandemic, I have found that a bit of comedy is hugely beneficial to me, as I am sure it is to many others. I think that many people can relate to the inherent humor in the stockpiling of toilet paper during a pandemic, which is why I chose it as the theme and medium for my film. I hope that viewers will find a bit of joy and amusement in watching Two Ply Over The Cuckoo’s Nest during these otherwise unsettling times.

Quotes

Kate J. Miller’s toilet paper recreation of our SIP realities makes you smile and laugh, and that’s something that we all crave. Every aspect of “Two Ply” -- from its coy title to its wild TP animation -- ever so perfectly encapsulates what it is like to work and live at home. A perfect Rx for when you’re feeling down. - Randy Myers, kqed.org
