Host: Dr George Karavas

When: 25 October 6pm-8:30pm

Where: Room s304, Building 24

Karamakate, an Amazonian shaman and last survivor of his people, and two scientists work together over the course of 40 years to search the Amazon for a sacred healing plant.

It's a while since anyone went up a big river with a camera and a big idea, but it never gets old... When the explorers come ashore, in either time frame, we get a sense of chaos, bloodshed, decay and distress. Some of this has been done in the name of God, but God is a long time gone. It's just madness and greed and death now, following in the wake of "civilisation".

About School Film Series

Since 2012, the School of Political Science and International Studies has run a documentary/film series each semester.

Screenings feature both fictional films and documentaries that address important themes of concern for the study of Political Science and International Studies.

The series is designed as an informal discussion forum about the politics of filmic works in general. Each session will be introduced by a member of the School's teaching team who will also facilitate a post-screening discussion and Q&A.

Anyone at The University of Queensland, whether currently enrolled in School of Political Science and International Studies courses or not, is welcome to attend.
