Set in Colombian Amazon, Embrace of the Serpent is the story of a young shaman who helps a sick German explorer and his local guide search for a rare healing plant. Directed by Academy Award winning director Ciro Guerra, this film had a unanimous thumbs up from the London Film Club team.
Another contender for the top spot was Stanford Prison Experiment. The film talks about how Philip Zimbardo’s famous 1971 project at Stanford University in California had a devastating effect on those involved.
