Renowned writer and adventurer, Bruce Chatwin, touched many through his novels and journalistic works. Throughout his career, Chatwin traveled extensively, exploring sociological and natural history and connecting with people of many cultures, including nomadic and tribal. After Chatwin’s death, his friend, filmmaker Werner Herzog, set out on his own adventure: following in Chatwin’s footsteps and using his writings and stories to guide him. From Patagonia to the Australian Outback, Herzog retraces some of Chatwin’s most important expeditions. Along the way, Herzog brings the memory of his late friend to life through detailed narrations and interviews with Chatwin’s friends, family, and colleagues. A documentary told in eight captivating chapters, NOMAD: IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF BRUCE CHATWIN is a beautiful homage to an extraordinary person, who was Herzog’s dear friend and collaborator. — G.S.
