Hey Canada! Here's Where To Watch Oscar Contender EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT
Northern Banner Releasing, the indie distribution arm of Raven Banner Entertainment, is releasing Colombian film Embrace of the Serpent in cinemas across Canada starting on February 19th. The complete of release dates and cinemas is below.
At once blistering and poetic, the ravages of colonialism cast a dark shadow over the South American landscape in director Ciro Guerra's (The Wind Journeys) third feature. 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.
