Documentary feature film in which Surinam/Dutch filmmaker Pim de la Parra is followed by a beautiful documentary maker while he is shooting a historical drama.
Is it a feature film? A documentary about the filmmaker? Pim de la Parra prefers to call it a documentary feature film. While the Surinam filmmaker shoots a historical film about the abolition of slavery, he is approached by a Dutch filmmaker. She wants to make a portrait of him. His wife scents danger. Justifiably, when it turns out that the documentary filmmaker has had an affair with the director. Meanwhile, De la Parra himself is primarily concerned with making films. He views rushes and muses on expensive crane shots. Raw footage of his historical film is alternated with interviews with De la Parra's colleagues. Het laatste verlangen is not only a film about minimal movie maker Pim de la Parra himself, but also about his relationship to film, women and the Surinam film climate. De la Parra invariably opts for improvisation and documentary photography. Occasionally, the documentary story is illustrated with archive footage from De la Parra's earlier work.
