A Pasi Fu Romeo (Romeo’s Road)

From the local Surinamese tongue, “A Pasi Fu Romeo” can be translated into either “Romeo’s Road” or “Romeo’s Passion”. In either case, the double meaning is appropriate when describing the passionate road the film’s main subject, Romeo Koffymaga, has taken to become an emerging Maroon voice in the fight against logging transportation practices in Suriname. As the film portrays, Romeo is a man who developed his righteous mentality as a fearless soldier fighting against a leftist military regime during Suriname’s Civil War (1986-1992). Today, Romeo has put down his rifle, but continues to fight using the power of his voice.
