Film by Sharelly Emanuelson in Africa in the Picture
Sharelly Emanuelson is a young filmmaker from Dutch
Caribbean descent with a big urge to make documentaries involving here place of
birth and it's people. She was interviewed for a local radio station in Amsterdam in Papiamentu (the vernacular of Curacao) due
toe the featuring of her first released docu during the Africa in the Picture
Filmfestival in Amsterdam.
The documentary Su solo i playanan tells the different stories of people living
on the island of Curacao, told alongside the beautiful
beaches of the island. In the interview Emanuelson tell us she wanted to
contrast the cliché image of the sunny island with beautiful beached with the
reality of the people which in those cases also included their worries about
the future. Emanuelson also explain in the conversation why she founded Uni
Arte, a collective of Caribbean artists working and living in Holland, which
will later also include artists living on the islands.
