Embrace of the Serpent

OTTAWA PREMIERE | STARTS FEBRUARY 19

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE – BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM

“A stunning visual and a culturally informative film.” – Dennis Schwartz, Ozus’ World Movie Reviews

“It’s an absorbing, even thrilling head trip” – Jessica Kiang, The Playlist

Embrace of the Serpent centers 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. The film was inspired by the real-life journals of two explorers (Theodor Koch-Gr├╝nberg and Richard Evans Schultes) who traveled through the Colombian Amazon during the last century in search of the sacred and difficult-to-find psychedelic Yakruna plant.
