EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT

DIRECTOR: Ciro Guerra - COLOMBIA

Crosscutting stories set decades apart, Guerra weaves two parallel journeys between a lone Amazonian shaman and western scientists in search of ancestral knowledge deep into the Amazon. Karamakate is the last survivor of his tribe and, despite incursions by missionaries and plunderers, becomes a guide for two scientists in search of the rare and sacred yakruna plant, first in 1909 then 1940. With stunning black and white cinematography capturing spectacular rainforest landscapes, Embrace of the Serpent serves both as a hallucinatory adventure film and a damning indictment of colonial destruction of indigenous cultures. Best Film, Mar del Plata Film Festival. (125 mins.)

Actor Brionne Davis in attendance. 

Filmography: The Wind Journeys (2009), La Sombra del Caminante (2004)
