Event Description

Embrace of the Serpent is a beautifully shot narrative based on two expeditions up the Amazon in search of a plant with magical healing powers. Both expeditions, 40 years apart from one another, are conducted by Karamakate, a shaman, and two different European scientists. Shades of Apocalypse Now, but with a powerful emphasis on indigenous perspectives on colonialism.
