Directed by Ciro Guerra and extended for the second time at The Film Forum. Nominated for Best Foreign Film (Colombia) is a film that must be seen. Set in the Amazon, EMBRACE THE SERPENT is "mesmerizing" as it tells the story of two western explorers who search for a rare botanical species in this remote and lush South American jungle. 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 Director's Fortnight.
