Stones Have Laws is an immersive initiation into the life of a Maroon community in the former Dutch colony of Suriname. Combining stories of African ancestral traditions and escaped slavery with enacted contemporary rituals, the film explores how the community’s powerful ties to the land have become endangered as industries threaten to devastate the region through deforestation and mining. The directors closely involved the community in the development of the project, resulting in a unique cinematic mix of filmmaking, poetry and theatre.

“...Stones Have Laws is highly compelling.” Leslie Felperin, The Guardian
