Embrace of the Serpent - at Frome Film Club
 

Embrace of the Serpent
Director: Ciro Guerra, Colombia 2015, 125 minutes, Cert 12

This enthralling, dream-like mix of myth and historical reality centres on the relationship between an Amazonian shaman, Karamakate, and two western scientists, both in search of a fabled plant with healing properties and on journeys set 40 years apart. Haunting and beautifully shot in monochrome, the film pays tribute to the lost cultures and civilisations of the Colombian Amazon, while offering an unequivocal indictment on the ravages of colonialism.

Winner: Silver Bear (Best Script), Berlin Film Festival 2015
