Travel lets Jennifer Podemski step outside her life as an actor
The Canadian actor and producer found the perspective she needed in New York
For a prolific actor, traveling for work can be a way of life, but how many actually take the opportunity that a change of scene brings to your perspective? In this video, Gemini nominated actor and producer Jennifer Podemski recounts how traveling for work has enriched her creative life — particularly a pivotal trip to New York City that led to her biggest epiphany as an artist.
You can catch Jennifer in her latest acting role, Fire Song, the debut feature by First Nations director Adam Garnet Jones. The movie, which focuses on a two-spirited Anishinaabe man facing difficult choices, premiered at TIFF and is currently playing the film festival circuit. Fire Song will be released theatrically in 2016.
