Sterlin Harjo Presents "This May Be The Last Time" says
Director Sterlin Harjo (Seminole/Creek) has gained critical and audience acclaim with his films throughout the world. He is one of seven Innovative Indigenous filmmakers who participated in the Embargo Collective, a project launched in 2008 by imagineNATIVE Film & Media Arts Festival. In 2010 Harjo served as a jury member for the Sundance Film Festival and in 2009 as an Advisor for the Sundance Institute Ford Foundation Film Fellowship. He is a founding member of the comedy collective The 1491s, grew up in Holdenville, Oklahoma, and now lives in Tulsa.

Tracing a heartfelt journey, "This May Be the Last Time" interweaves the tale of a mysterious death in 1962 with the rich history of the powerful hymns that have united Native American communities in times of worship, joy, tragedy, and hope. By investigating the stories of these songs, this illuminating film takes us on an epic tour as we travel with the power of the music through Southwest America, slavery in the deep South, and as far away as the Scottish Highlands.

Join Sterlin Harjo for a screening and discussion of his film "This May Be the Last Time."
