Didcot Film Club is showing the Oscar nominated film Embrace of the Serpent at Cornerstone this Wednesday.

Embrace of the Serpent is a Colombian film which was released last year and was nominated for the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. It has featured in many critics' lists of the best film of the year and is just the sort of film that Didcot Film Club was set up for.

It is a clash of cultures story as an Amazonian shaman works with two scientists to find a sacred healing plant.
