POST FILM Q & A with FILM STAR, BRIONNE DAVIS. 

At once blistering and poetic, the ravages of colonialism cast a dark shadow over the South American landscape in EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT, the third feature by Ciro Guerra. Filmed in stunning black-and-white, SERPENT centers on Karamakate, an Amazonian shaman and the last survivor of his people, and the two scientists who, over the course of 40 years, build a friendship with him. The film was inspired by the real-life journals of two explorers (Theodor Koch-Grünberg and Richard Evans Schultes) who traveled through the Colombian Amazon during the last century in search of the sacred and difficult-to-find psychedelic Yakruna plant.

When Brionne Davis landed in the Colombian Amazon to begin filming "Embrace of the Serpent" he had no idea how all of the experiences of his life would come together to form a greater sense of validation, respect for the magic of the indigenous, and an increased appreciation for the environment. Brionne is an actor, director, and a strong advocate for environmental preservation. Growing up near the Ozark foothills in North Texas, Brionne was able to maintain close ties to his Choctaw roots, whose spirit still dwells within him now. Brionne will be sharing his magical and inspirational message on filming the internationally acclaimed film in the Amazon, working with the indigenous tribes, the nightly visitations from shaman spirits, and how a moth landing on his shoulder would forever change his life.

Brionne will also be a keynote speaker at the Earth Harmony Festival October 1st and 2nd – http://earthharmonyfestival.org/lineup/speakers

The Earth Harmony Festival is always all-ages, with speakers and live music that offer higher-consciousness messages not to be missed by young or old. An interactive children's village, pony rides, and guided arts and crafts round out the many offerings for the young, or the young-at-heart.

PRESENTED BY AMERICAN MURDER SONG, LLC

“Terrance Zdunich (Repo! The Genetic Opera) and Saar Hendelman (The Devil’s Carnival) will welcome audiences back in time to ‘The Year Without A Summer,’ conjuring the ghosts and bloody crimes of 1816 America, singing tales of untimely death… and murder. However, each “service” will be up-close-and-personal with limited coffin room available so fans can reserve their space today.

Zdunich and Hendelman are hitting the road in a makeshift casket carriage to embark on “The American Wake Tour,” a 30-city expedition. The duo are calling on fans around the country to wear their blackest veils and prepare their dark hearts for an intimate gathering of fine spirits, live music, and "grave entertainment.”
