ONLINE—Nomad: In the Footsteps of Bruce Chatwin

Friday, August 28—Thursday, September 24, 2020,

(Werner Herzog, UK 2019, 85 min.)

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 life together on earth. Herzog brings Chatwin’s trusty rucksack, given to him on Chatwin’s deathbed, on his travels, from the southernmost region of South America to southern England to the songlines of Australia, as Herzog relates his relationship with Chatwin, and what he’s learned about the writer since his death.
