The Summer Help

Melody Gilbert
You don't know who is doing the dirty work. At their universities in Eastern Europe, they are future bankers, journalists and politicians. In America they are just ‘the help’.

Great Success of 'The Summer Help' on Kickstarter


243 people supported Melody Gilbert’s documentary pitched at ZagrebDox.

The Summer Help, a documentary project by Melody Gilbert, who took part at last year’s ZagrebDox Pro workshop to present her film at the Pitching Forum, succeeded in getting all the necessary funds to complete the project through a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.

The Summer Help is a documentary film about young people getting educated at the universities in eastern Europe to become bankers, journalists and politicians, while in the US they are simply ‘the help’ hired to ‘do the dirty work’.
