Pim de la Parra is a Surinamese filmmaker who started his career in the Netherlands a decade before Suriname’s independence. He is the director of Wan Pipel (One People; 1976), the first Surinamese feature film ever made, and Odyssée d’Amour (Odyssey of Love; 1987), the first Dutch feature film set on a Dutch Caribbean island, Aruba. In this interview with Emiel Martens, De la Parra discusses his model of “minimal moviemaking” as well as the specific challenges of a postcolonial film
industry in a fragmented region such as the Caribbean.
