"A visually mesmerizing exploration of man, nature and the destructive powers of colonialism, Embrace of the Serpent marks an impressively realized third feature from Colombian writer-director Ciro Guerra . . . featuring knockout black-and-white cinematography and an array of breathtaking locations." Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter. An Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, Embrace of the Serpent features the encounter, apparent betrayal, and finally life-affirming friendship between an Amazonian shaman (the last survivor of his people) and two foreign scientists.
