Embrace Of The Serpent
Sep 10, 2016
Maleny Community Centre
Dinner 6.00pm, Screening 8.00pm
Entry: $13 ($8 MFS members)
Embrace of the Serpent features the encounter, apparent betrayal and finally life-affirming friendship between an Amazonian shaman (the last survivor of his people) and two foreign scientists.
Filmed in stunning black-and-white, Embrace Of The 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.
Please note for this event that dinner commences at 6pm (sold separately) and the screening commences at 7.15pm.
