NOMAD: IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF BRUCE CHATWIN

NOMAD: IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF BRUCE CHATWIN

When legendary writer and adventurer Bruce Chatwin was dying, he summoned his friend and collaborator Werner Herzog, asking to see his recent film about tribesmen of the Sahara. In exchange, as a parting gift, Chatwin gave Herzog the rucksack he’d carried on his travels around the world. Thirty years later, carrying the rucksack, Herzog sets out on his own epic journey, inspired by their shared passion for the nomadic life. Along the way, Herzog discovers stories of dinosaurs, lost tribes, Aboriginal traditions, wanderers and dreamers. From Patagonia, to the Black Mountains of Wales, to the Australian outback, Nomad offers a fitting and thought-provoking tribute to a man whose work explores human restlessness and wandering, borders and exile, and art and objects. A unique portrait of one of the 20th Century’s most charismatic writers, the film is also a revealing insight into the imagination and obsessions of one of the world’s most visionary directors.
