Werner Herzog, legendary director of Grizzly Man, Meeting Gorbachev, and Cave of Forgotten Dreams, turns the camera on himself and his decades-long friendship with the late travel writer and explorer Bruce Chatwin, the prolific author of In Patagonia and a champion of the nomadic lifestyle. He was a kindred spirit whose quest for ecstatic truth carried him to all corners of the globe. Herzog re-visits places that Chatwin loved, including Patagonia, the Australian outback, and Ghana, where they worked together on Herzog’s 1987 film Cobra Verde, adapted from Chatwin’s novel. Herzog’s deeply personal portrait of Chatwin, illustrated with insightful interviews, archival discoveries, film clips and a perplexing “brontosaurus skin,” encompasses their shared interest in aboriginal cultures, ancient rituals and the mysteries stitching together life on earth. Told in Herzog’s inimitable style and bursting at the seams with unforgettable characters and encounters, Nomad takes the viewer on a scenic journey to uncover stories of lost tribes, wanderers and dreamers.
