Embrace of the Serpent 2016
(b&w, 125 minutes Spanish)
The ravages of colonialism cast a dark shadow over the South American landscape in this 2016 Academy Award nominated film. Embrace of the Serpent is based on the journals of two 19th Century explorers in search of the psychedelic Yakruna plant. In this production, the action centres on Karamakate, an Amazonian shaman, the last survivor of his people and two scientists who build a friendship with him over 40 years.
