Filming for “Killers of the Flower Moon” continues in Oklahoma. The Osage News is there to document the making of a film that unveils a dark period in U.S. history, when greed and evil surrounded the Osage people.
“Killers of the Flower Moon” is based on David Grann’s highly praised bestseller of the same name. Set in 1920s Oklahoma, the film depicts the serial murder of members of the oil-wealthy Osage Nation, a string of brutal crimes that came to be known as the Reign of Terror.
