Set in the Colombian Amazon, EMBRACE THE SERPENT has been called visually "mesmerizing" and "stunning," as it tells the tale of two Western explorers who search for rare botanical species in this most remote and lush of South American jungles. The film is based on the dairies of two white men who traveled the region, one in 1909, and the other 30 years later. Winner of the top prize at the 2015 Cannes Directors' Fortnight.
