Wan Pipel (1976) dir. Pim de la Parra / Suriname
Situated in the 1975 Independence of Suriname Wan Pipel (One People) is a classic postcolonial film which shows Roy an Afro-Surinamese Phd student studying in the Netherlands who returns to Suriname after receiving a telegram that his mother is ill. In Suriname he falls in love with his country and also a Hindustani nurse Rubia and I will leave the description here so you guys can enjoy the film. I loved how the director incorporates postcolonial national unity and the diversity of Suriname showing It’s Indigenous, Afro-Surinamese, Hindustani, Javanese and Chinese communities.
