"Chronicles of the Summer" Documents a Critical Time in the Lives of Three Young Black Girls

Via Vimeo:

At South Shore Fine Arts, Indigo and her friends are given the opportunity to participate in visual and performance arts after school. But when school ends for the summer, it's up to the parents in south shore to find a safe and affordable 'education' for their daughters. Despite finical and family troubles, parents enroll their kids in summer programs with the hope of preparing them for more than just the fall semester. In Chronicles of the Summer, we see how much the girls learn as they deal with the personal and artistic challenges that shape their identity during a critical age. Confronting notions of a 'poor education', this community redefines what is worth learning.
