At once blistering and poetic, the ravages of colonialism cast a dark shadow over the South American landscape in Embrace of the Serpent, the third feature by Ciro Guerra. Filmed in stunning black-and-white, Serpent centres on Karamakate, an Amazonian shaman and the last survivor of his people, and the two scientists who, over the course of 40 years, build a friendship with him.
Winner of 18 prizes (and counting) at festivals around the world from Sundance to Cannes, and nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. In German, Portuguese, Latin, Spanish and Catalan with English subtitles.
