EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT is an epic film telling the story of one German Anthropologist's quest for a medicine that will cure him of his deadly ailment. This quest entails hiring a local guide to bring him to the far corners of the Colombian Amazon in search of a young shaman. Justin Chang from Variety states that "At once blistering and poetic, not just an ethnographic study but also a striking act of cinematic witness."
