While most people escape one of the deadliest disasters in modern history, volunteers rush in for the rescue. What are they running away from?


In the chaos of post earthquake Haiti, members of a guerrilla-style NGO resort to an ends justify the means approach to bringing relief. Their temporary sense of control enables them to grapple with the issues that propelled them from the US to this disaster zone. Call for Help explores the tension between pure altruism and a helpers high and the impact of their combination.


The idea for our movie stemmed from one simple action Lior took a few hours after the 2010 earthquake hit. He went down to Haiti to help in anyway he could. Upon his return as the two of us sat and looked at the footage he captured, I kept asking him the same questions over and over again: "Why did you go risk your life going down there? Why does anyone really go out of their way to help strangers?" One would think that the answer would be a simple one. But for Lior it was not. We decided to travel back to Haiti in order to try and isolate the chromosome of giving. Global Dirt is the personal story of young people who decide to live their lives in a disaster stricken area taking care of anyone but themselves, proving that one person can make a difference.
