Director's Statement

The full title of the film is in reference to the unusual public reaction of stockpiling toilet paper when the outbreak of Covid-19 began across many countries around the world. Producing, directing and performing in a film all by yourself is extremely difficult at the best of times, but doing this without leaving the house was even harder. Luckily my camera has a bluetooth feature which allowed me to control the camera settings and press record remotely using my phone. Lemon and cheese sandwiches are actually not bad.
