Who is Melody Gilbert?

Melody Gilbert is an award-winning independent documentary filmmaker and educator whose work is noteworthy for featuring a rare intimacy with her subjects as she unearths previously hidden worlds. She works mostly solo, querying her subjects from behind the camera, giving voice to ordinary people with extraordinary stories. She has the uncanny ability to get people to open up and reveal their innermost thoughts, whether it’s the family of a child who can’t feel pain, a couple who gets married at the world’s largest shopping mall, a former Vice President of the United States or a physically healthy person who desperately wants to become an amputee.
