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. As rich visually as it is thematically, it offers a feast of the senses for film fans seeking a dose of bracing originality.

“A visually mesmerizing exploration of man, nature and the destructive powers of colonialism.”
Jordan Mintzer, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“An intense journey and very rewarding visual feast.”
Nathaniel Rogers, THE FILM EXPERIENCE

“Embrace of the Serpent is simply a work of art, and one of the most singular cinematic experiences you could hope to have in Cannes, or anywhere really. It’s an absorbing, even thrilling head trip. It is a Heart-of-Darkness voyage of discovery. It is a lament for all the lost plants and peoples of the world.”
Jessica Kiang, THE PLAYLIST
