Embrace of the Serpent at Splendid Cinema

OK, so this film is a bit of a hard sell; not because it is “difficult” or “politically provocative” but because it is a very quiet, and exceptionally beautiful, film. Those who attend will be well rewarded for the effort.

Embrace of the Serpent

The story of the relationship between Karamakate, an Amazonian shaman and last survivor of his people, and two scientists who work together over the course of 40 years to search the Amazon for a sacred healing plant. A truly beautiful, moving and spiritually challenging film.
