Embrace of the Serpent (2015)

  • Adventure, Drama
  • 2h 5m

The story of the relationship between Karamakate, an Amazonian shaman and last survivor of his people, and two scientists who work together over the course of forty years to search the Amazon for a sacred healing plant. An anthropological adventure and character mystery, poignant condemnation of colonialism and teemingly rich tribute to a lost world, Ciro Guerra’s monochrome heart-of-darkness fable is a multitudinous stunner.
