*Caption picture above: Sammy Paramaribo crew

Weeks of hard work have now come to an end. This week our crew shot the last scene of Sammy Paramaribo!

Sammy Paramaribo tells a story of a 7 year old girl, called Sammy. She is from Surinam origin but born and raised in Almere, The Netherlands. For the first time she travels on her own to her aunt Sjaan in Paramaribo, Surinam.

To give this series its essential authenticity and originality we travelled with Sammy back to Surinam.
In this children’s series, between the age of 4 and 8, we see through the eyes of Sammy and get a closer look into the Surinam culture in an educative way. The contrast and differences between the Dutch culture and Surinam culture are playfully shown in all 5 episodes.

Sammy Paramaribo has been fully shot in Surinam, with local Surinam actors and will be broadcasted on Dutch public service television (KRO). It will also be broadcasted on Surinam television.

We would like to thank everyone for their hard work, effort and dedication to make this happen!

Special thanks to ‘Ijswater Films’, the producer in cooperation with KRO-NCRV, supported by Mediafonds, Director Barbara Bredero, Screenwriter Sabrina Sugiarto, Eddy Wijngaarde and ‘The Backlot’ as service production.

Shooting in the beautiful country Surinam as a line producer was a great opportunity for Caribbean Filmcom.

If you are curious about the results of this short children’s series, make sure to check the programming of the television stations in Surinam or the public service television station KRO in the Netherlands.
