“One of the director’s most personal films … Werner’s latest might be his most Herzoggian film yet.” – Pat Mullen, POV Magazine
When British writer and adventurer Bruce Chatwin was dying of AIDS, he gave his friend Werner Herzog the rucksack that he carried on all of his adventures around the world. Now, three decades later, carrying the rucksack, Herzog sets out on his own journey inspired by Chatwin’s passion for the nomadic life. Along the way, Herzog discovers stories of dinosaurs, lost tribes, Aboriginal traditions, wanderers and dreamers. From Patagonia, to the gorgeous landscape of Wales, to the Australian outback, Nomad: In the Footsteps of Bruce Chatwin offers a fitting and thought-provoking tribute to a man whose work explores human restlessness and wandering, borders and exile, and art and objects. Told in Werner Herzog’s distinctive style, Nomad is a portrait of one of the 20th century’s most charismatic writers, full of memorable characters and encounters. It is also a portrait of two kindred spirits (Herzog even based his 1987 film Cobra Verde on Chatwin’s The Viceroy of Ouidah), and offers a fascinating insight into Herzog’s own obsessions and imagination. (Dir. by Werner Herzog, 2019, UK, in English/German/Aboriginal with English subtitles, 89 mins., Not Rated)
