Embrace Of The Serpent

Sunday 4th December 5:00 PM


A Columbian contender for Best Foreign Film at the Oscars 2015 is a rarity in itself, but this is a "Conradian jungle dream, or nightmare, shot in searing, scorching monochrome. It has something of Herzog's Aguirre or Coppola's Apocalypse Now" - Peter Bradshaw, Guardian... and "the result is unique and intoxicating, an art movie that grips like a thriller" - Tom Huddleston, Time Out.

The story follows two explorers, 30 years apart, who travel into the Amazon in search of the medicinal and psychedelic yakruna plant, where they both meet the same shaman. The result is a beautiful journey where the past meets the present: a contender for Keswick's film of the season?
