Embrace of the Serpent

Directed by Ciro Guerra
125 min

Nominated for an Academy Award, this unique, intoxicating, mesmerizing black and white film takes you on a cinematic journey through the Amazon. In 1906, Karamakate, a shaman and the last survivor of his aboriginal tribe, is convinced by a dying white foreign scientist to guide him through the suffocating jungle searching for a sacred healing psychedelic plant, the yakruna. Thirty-one years later, another scientist convinces him to take up the original quest. Karamakate agrees because he believes the souls of the two white men is one. This mysterious, humorous, mazelike film tells a multifaceted
and compelling story. Winner of 37 film festival awards!
