The first fiction film to be shot in the Colombian Amazon in more than 30 years, EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT premieres on BitTorrent Bundle.
Get ready to trip balls as you follow the dreamlike encounter, betrayal and finally life-affirming friendship between an Amazonian shaman (the last survivor of his people) and two foreign scientists in one of the most original and celebrated films of the year.
A rich, cinematic miracle captured in luscious high-contrast super 35mm black & white film, El Abrazo De La Serpiente (Embrace of the Serpent) has stunned critics and audiences alike at the Cannes, Toronto and Sundance Film Festivals before being nominated for the Best Foreign Language Oscar among other honors.
One week into shooting deep into the Amazon, writer and director Ciro Guerra started to have second thoughts, “It became clear, crystal clear, that finishing this movie was impossible. We had dreamt too big, we had aimed too far. We had been sinfully optimistic, and the gods and the jungle were about to punish us. With this clarity, like the sailor who is the first to notice that the vessel is sinking, I sat down and prepared for the inevitable. But then, what I witnessed was how a miracle came into being.”
