Embrace of the Serpent

Our next film, on Tuesday 5 December at 19:45, is Embrace of the Serpent, a stirring tale of adventure and cultural clash, set in the Amazon rain-forest.  Shot almost entirely in sumptuous black and white, it tells of the relationship between a shaman, destined to be the last of his tribe, and two different white explorers over a 40 year period. They are seeking an elusive healing plant said to possess miraculous properties.
