Oema foe Sranan / Women of Suriname (1978) is a documentary by Cineclub Vrijheidsfilms and LOSON(1), made in the context of the then recent independence of Suriname. The film follows four women who, through personal stories, tell the history of colonialism, neo-colonialism and discrimination there, in Suriname, and here, in the Netherlands.

Simultaneously with the restoration of Oema foe Sranan, a short documentary has been produced, titled Strijd op 16mm (A Battle restored), which captures the stories of the realisation and screening of this underexposed activist film at the time. This short documentary is used to accompany the restored film Oema Foe Sranan (1978).
