Adrian Sutherland’s memorable music video, Walk With Me, will be screening at the 48th American Indian Film Festival, known for showcasing cutting-edge cinema by and about Native Peoples. Walk With Me will be screening live on Wednesday, November 8, at the San Francisco Public Library.
Walk With Me has been nominated for Best Music Video at the festival, and the annual Film Awards will take place on the evening of Saturday, November 11 at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco.
ABOUT THE MUSIC VIDEO
“Walk With Me is about going on a journey together and sharing the same path, even if you both come from different places. With reconciliation in the forefront, it's more important now than ever before that we take time to walk with each other, and be willing to see the world through the eyes of another. This song also pays tribute to my grandparents, Moses and Juliette, and traditions of the past," says Sutherland, who wrote the song in 2019 with Serena Ryder and released it on his JUNO-nominated debut solo album When The Magic Hits in 2021.
Walk With Me happened because of Steve Pritchard, his inspiring students, and the support of Beachburg Public School. Everyone put their hearts and souls into it, along with feet and hands. It was an honour to capture such a special project and to see the love and spirit put into their process.
