NOMAD: IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF BRUCE CHATWIN

NOMAD: IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF BRUCE CHATWIN

2020 (USA) 85 minutes
Directed by: Wernor Herzog

When Bruce Chatwin was dying, his friend Werner Herzog made a final visit. As a parting gift, Chatwin gave him his rucksack. Thirty years later, Herzog sets out on his own journey, inspired by Chatwin’s passion for the nomadic life. 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.
