Embrace of the Serpent

The story of the relationship between Karamakate, an Amazonian shaman, the last survivor of his tribe, and two European scientists who work together over 40 years to locate a secret healing plant. The breath-taking cinematography and dreamlike pace of the film do not overshadow the theme of conflict between an ancient civilisation and modern western economic pressures.
