Wan Pipel (1976) at Eye Filmmuseum
In honour of the Surinamese Independence Day on November 25, Patta, Eye Filmmuseum and MUBI are coming together to present a screening of the iconic Surinamese-Dutch classic WAN PIPEL (1976) by Pim de la Parra. This special screening includes a video introduction by the director himself. Guests receive a MUBI tote bag and a complimentary drink. De la Parra's greatest film is a romantic and political story about Roy, who is studying in The Netherlands and returns to Paramaribo. WAN PIPEL was the first feature film made in independent Suriname and shows the social tensions of the multi-ethnic country. The film is considered a classic and broadcasts on Surinamese television around Independence Day every year.
