Suriname Veteran

Although Suriname’s Civil War (1986-1992) was a modern conflict, it has largely evaded the grasp of filmmakers and storytellers worldwide. And of the Civil War stories that permeate South America’s smallest country, few focus on the everyday Maroon foot-soldiers who fought, tooth-and-nail, against Suriname’s Marxist regime. “Suriname Veteran” captures the transformation that occurred when Romeo donned his red beret and became a Corporal once again.
