Nomad: In the Footsteps of Bruce Chatwin

Nomad: In the Footsteps of Bruce Chatwin

As the narrative unfolds through eight chapters, Werner Herzog delves into the life and the ideas of British writer and modern-day nomad Bruce Chatwin. The legendary German filmmaker’s auf wiedersehen to a man whose constant need to explore new images and cultures he could empathize with is nothing less than a thrilling journey for the sake of journey itself. A meticulously crafted documentary that renders homage to its guest of honor, while playfully alluding to Herzog’s own larger-than-life adventures in the four corners of the world, driven by a similar obsession over decoding the ancient and contemporary mysteries of our planet.
