A breathtaking ethnographic odyssey through the heart of the Colombian Amazon, Oscar nominated Embrace of the Serpent details the quests of two European explorers, one in 1909 and the other in the 1940s, both in search of a flower alleged to have healing properties.

Taking inspiration from the real-life journals kept by these men, we travel with them as they are both guided through the labyrinthine jungles by the same native shaman, Karamakate, the last surviving member of his tribe. With nine different languages spoken during the course of the film, this hypnotic meditation on the beauty of nature and effects of colonialism is presented with an uncommon sense of curiosity rarely seen outside a Werner Herzog film.
