OSCAR-NOMINATED FILM KICKS OFF NEW INTERNATIONAL SERIES

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The International Affairs program at the Florida State University College of Social Sciences and Public Policy inaugurates a new foreign film series with the screening of the Oscar-nominated film “Embrace of the Serpent.”

“Embrace of the Serpent" is the first film in the Robert C. Dailey Foreign Films Series, established to bring campus and the public outstanding documentaries and feature films that provide insights on the unique traditions and values of countries and cultures throughout the world.

Each film screening will be followed by discussion to explore issues and ideas presented in the films.

The series was established by a gift from Mary Dailey in honor of her husband, who passed away in 1999. Robert Dailey was chair of the Florida State University Department of Anthropology from 1971 to 1975 and again from 1981 to 1984. He was a respected member of the university faculty for 25 years and celebrated for his pioneering work in forensic anthropology and archaeology.

The event will include a reception in honor of Robert Dailey.

“Embrace of the Serpent”tells the story of an Amazonian shaman, the last survivor of his people, who works with two scientists over the course of 40 years to search for a sacred healing plant.

The film was nominated for a Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award in 2016. It received widespread critical acclaim and won several awards globally.

In his review for Variety, Justin Chang called director Ciro Guerra’s tribute to the lost cultures and civilizations of the Colombian Amazon “visually majestic.”
