In the film, an unknown tragedy wipes out a South American town where an unnamed traveler journeys through the post-apocalyptic African landscape to find his mother. SERPENTARIUS opens with a short introduction about the director's life offering up the narrative that this is both a personal and existential journey. The film transcends time and space and brings questions of colonialism, death and existence to the forefront. 

Carlos Conceição, a Portuguese director, majored in English with a focus on Anglo-Saxon Romantic literature and earned a degree in film directing at the Lisbon Theatre and Film School in 2006. He is known for Goodnight, Cinderella (2014), and Hell, or Pool Keeping (2011). Conceição wrote, edited, narrated, and directed SERPENTARIUS
