Embrace of the Serpent (2015)

EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT

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 40 years to search the Amazon for a sacred healing plant. This is a 2015 film directed by Ciro Guerra. It was shot in black-and-white. The film won the Art Cinema Award in the Directors’ Fortnight section at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 88th Academy Awards. The film was inspired by the travel diaries of Theodor Koch-Grunberg and Richard Evans Schultes, and dedicated to lost Amazonian cultures.
