On this edition of Independent Sources, hosted by Garry Pierre-Pierre, we look at two organizations’ efforts to address the steep decline in learning that takes place among students during the summer holidays. We talk to the organizer of a film market that hopes to provide more distribution options and marketing skills to small filmmakers. Then, we visit a Brooklyn bar that’s using world music as a form of political protest.
