Film: ‘Embrace of the Serpent’

The SC Film Society presents “Embrace of the Serpent”, a 2015 Colombian film in Spanish with English subtitles, Monday, Nov. 21 at the Gibsons Heritage Playhouse.

This extraordinary adventure, based on a true story, follows a charismatic tribal shaman as he helps two scientists, 40 years apart, search for plants in the Amazon. Both sorcerer and saint, this proud yet tragic being struggles against the unstoppable current of history. As the men snake their way up the river, this poetic, hypnotic film explores the devouring of a culture by colonialism. Shot in stunning black and white, this is simply a unique work of art.

The film shows at 7:30pm, with doors open 7pm. Members $5, non-members $9.  Submitted
