NOMAD: IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF BRUCE CHATWIN
2020, Music Box Films, 85 min, UK, Dir: Werner Herzog

Werner Herzog turns the camera on himself and his decades-long friendship with the late travel writer Bruce Chatwin, a kindred spirit whose quest for ecstatic truth carried him to all corners of the globe. Herzog’s deeply personal portrait of Chatwin, illustrated with archival discoveries, film clips and a mound of “brontosaurus skin,” encompasses their shared interest in aboriginal cultures, ancient rituals and the mysteries stitching together life on earth.
