Embrace of the Serpent

2h 5m Adventure, Drama 2015

AroView: A breathtaking cinematic odyssey through the Amazon, following the quests of two European explorers (one in 1909 and the other in the 1940s).

Inspired by their real-life journals, the film charts each man’s treacherous and life-changing journey, as they encounter Karamakate, an Amazonian shaman and last survivor of his people, and search the Amazon for a sacred healing plant. A visionary film about the effect of white colonialism on the Amazon rainforest and indigenous ways of life.

“Unfolds with a stunning directorial sureness and a layered intelligence that at times lands an insight so wincingly wise and true it takes your breath away.” ~ The Playlist.
