In 1962, filmmaker Sterlin Harjo’s grandfather disappeared mysteriously, and as the Seminole community searched for him, they sang ancient songs of faith and hope. This May Be the Last Time traces the creation of the songs, which commemorate the forced removal of the Seminole from their homeland.

Our take

With a family mystery at its center, this spellbinding documentary from Native American filmmaker Sterlin Harjo relies on tribal music as a compass for the past. Chronicling the history of oppression in the US, hymns of love and remembrance also attest to the resilience of persecuted communities.
