EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT is a breathtaking cinematic odyssey through the Amazon, following the quests of two European explorers across two different time periods in search of a rare flower with healing properties. Based on journals kept by the actual explorers, each man’s treacherous and life-changing journey – though decades apart – is shaped by the same Native American guide, Karamakate, the last surviving member of his tribe.

An extraordinary journey through the Amazon jungle, this unique black and white film from Colombian filmmaker Ciro Guerra is both poetic and confronting as it explores indigenous cultures, traditions, dreams and the impact of colonisation. Visually stunning, the raw beauty of the landscape is breathtaking, yet the narrative involving two scientists and their search 40 years apart fails to embrace as it should. * – Louise Keller – *Urban Cinefile
