The Botanist: Embrace of the Serpent (12)

Sun 10 , Tue 12 & Thu 14 September

Colombia | 2015 | 119’ | 12 | Ciro Guerra | Spanish, Portuguese with English subtitles | Nilbio Torres, Antonio Bolívar 

In the early 1900s, Karamakate, a young shaman in the Colombian Amazon and the last of his people, helps a sick German explorer and his local guide search for a rare healing plant. Inspired by the journals of two real-life explorers, Guerra constructs a fictional knit of their experiences as the travellers experience the horrific aftermath of the rubber boom in the South American jungle.  

“I was utterly mesmerised, captivated and transported.” 
Mark Kermode, Observer
