I started the preparations for the new film Synamo at the end of 2009. The film is a fictional half hour short about three generations of Surinamese Jewish women based on facts about this dwindling, Creole Jewish community, and the oldest continuing community in the Americas.
Two years later, I am finally completely ready to start. Somehow other projects, both in dance and film, came through and this film, so dear to my heart, was pushed back again and again. I know that the time it took to come to this point will make for a better film as my understanding of this community and the large Jewish community in general has deepened.
