Help Wanted for “Summer Help”

Award-winning documentary filmmaker Melody Gilbert is making a film about two Bulgarian university students working in the United States during their summer break from school. It’s called The Summer Help. Take a look at the trailer. Then think about making a donation to the Kickstarter campaign so that the film can be completed and distributed. If you’ve met what seems to be a remarkably international employee contingent at boardwalk stores, amusement parks, hotels, pool clubs, and so on, you’ve probably met people like The Summer Help’s stars Elena and Nikoleta who are here via the U.S. State Department’s Work and Travel program. Kickstarter is “all-or-nothing” crowdfunding, which means Melody and her team don’t get to keep the funds unless they reach their goal. Please help bring this film to the screen by giving what you can.
