This Maybe the Last Time

Directed by Oklahoma’s Sundance winning filmmaker Sterlin Harjo, This May Be The Last Time is the story of Muscogee Creek and Seminole hymns, a unique style of singing that blended European music with plantation gospels and indigenous music to create America’s first original music. Told through a first-person voice-over by Harjo, the film travels through rural southeastern Oklahoma to uncover the stories of these songs and meet the people that keep it alive. It's a personal film about songs that is all woven together by a mystery. The death of the filmmaker’s grandfather. It's a very exclusive world that the viewer is let in on, and by the end they will realize that these songs have shaped the modern world as we know it.
