Product description

Product Description

“Before he can become a warrior a man has to leave everything behind and go into the jungle guided only by his dreams. In that journey he has to discover completely alone, who he really is. Some get lost and never come back”

Karamakate, a warrior shaman and last of his tribe, transcends the worlds of men and seeks truth through their dreams. He alone knows how to find the mysterious and psychedelic Yakruna plant; for some it has life-saving properties, for others it is a commodity waiting to be exploited. Two scientists, in two different times with very different agendas enlist Karamakate on their individual quests in an epic adventure into the heart of the Colombian Amazon to find this mythical plant.

This Oscar nominated film is seen through Karamakate’s eyes and bears witness to the effects ofcolonialism, religion and the exploitation of rubber, that affect indigenous traditions and the environment to which they are inextricably linked.

“The film is inspired by the travel diaries of Theodor Koch Grunberg (1879–1924) and Richard Evans Schultes (1915-2001). These diaries are the only known accounts of many Amazonian cultures. This film is dedicated to all the peoples whose song we will never know.” Ciro Guerra (Director EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT)

5 Stars: “…as real and vibrant as anything I have seen on screen. I was utterly mesmerized, captivated and transported.” – Mark Kermode, The Observer.

5 Stars: “Embrace of the Serpent is the type of film we’re always searching for” - The Guardian

4 Stars: “Intoxicating…an art movie that grips like a thriller” – Time Out

4 Stars: Film of the week: Pretty damn incredible…a beautifully shot and wonderfully told story…hunt it down and devour it whenever you can. – The Sun
