THE LAST AMERICAN is a 16mm feature length comedy about a slacker named Kev and his strange journey from hard-core street-punk to super-salesman!

Behind the Scenes

The Last American is a 16mm B&W feature film made entirely in Minneapolis, Minnesota for less than $7,000. It is a dark comedy about a punk rock rebel, who takes a strange journey from slacker to super-salesman. Using unpaid local actors, rented equipment, and a substantial film stock grant from Kodak, the production team of Audie Harrison, A.J. Pfeifer, and Peter Browngardt performed the functions of an entire film crew themselves. In true go-for-broke spirit, this three-man crew financed their movie with personal credit cards and shot it in just over one week. Having been inspired by the Minneapolis punk scene, the movie boasts several local bands contributing to the soundtrack. The result is a simple character film that doesn't take itself too seriously but makes its mark with bold punk rock style.
