This film is co-produced by Illumine Film and First Nations Development Institute and outlines the revitalization and re-creation of indigenous food systems in North America. Directed by Sanjay Rawal and produced by Tanya Meillier and Sterlin Harjo, “Gather” takes viewers to tribal communities where members are actively working Native food sovereignty issues. Just released in September 2020, it was the critic’s pick in The New York Times.
