Memre Yu (I Remember) 2019
A neglected family house in Paramaribo, Surinam. Almost 50 years ago, not long after being built, the house was left by a Surinam family that moved to The Netherlands. For good, it turned out. Today the house is a subtle reminder of the bond that the family still has with their country of birth. 'Memre Yu' is a poetic documentary about identity, migration and transitory memories.
