On June 8, 2021, the International Indigenous Music Summit (IIMS) launched Giiwewizh (to carry home), a special project that featured 16 Indigenous artists from across “Canada'' in 16 short documentaries, produced by Jennifer Podemski and directed by Sarain Fox. In each short film, artists invite us into their home and creative spaces and share their connection to land/place, identity, and their artistic practice. Shot entirely on iPhone 12, during lockdowns, the mini documentaries were edited alongside new live performance footage, and professionally recorded audio. These special works premiered collectively at IIMS 2021 during our evening showcase slots.
