“It is like no film about the Amazon that has ever been made,” raves the Los Angeles Times about Embrace of the Serpent, the Oscar-nominated film that details the beginning and end of the life of a tribal shaman known as Karamakate, who is the last of his kind. Blistering and poetic, Embrace of the Serpent is inspired by the real-life journals of botanists Theodor Koch-Grünberg and Richard Evan Schultes, who traveled the Colombian Amazon in search of the sacred—and psychedelic—Yakruna plant. The third film from Colombian director Ciro Guerra, Embrace of the Serpent is, as the Times proclaims, “an elegant black-and-white exploration of a fabled landscape that is often shown in lush shades of green.”
