Head Hi Presents: Embrace Of The Serpent

Head Hi Presents: Embrace Of The Serpent

At once blistering and poetic, the ravages of colonialism cast a dark shadow over the South American landscape in EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT, the third feature by Ciro Guerra. Filmed in stunning black-and-white, SERPENT centers on Karamakate, an Amazonian shaman and the last survivor of his people, and the two scientists who, over the course of 40 years, build a friendship with him. The film was inspired by the real-life journals of two explorers (Theodor Koch-Grünberg and Richard Evans Schultes) who traveled through the Colombian Amazon during the last century in search of the sacred and difficult-to-find psychedelic Yakruna plant.

This film can be watched on your desktop, tablet, smartphone as well as on any devices outfitted with Chromecast or Airplay. There are no native apps for smart TVs, Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, or Apple TV.
