Embrace of the Serpent
125min. Directed by Ciro Guerra.
Starring Nilbio Torres, Jan Bijvoet, Antonio Bolivar
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 who traveled through the Colombian Amazon during the last century in search of the sacred and difficult-to-find psychedelic Yakruna plant. Nominated for the 2016 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
