Werner Herzog · UK · 2019 · 85 mins · Not Rated

Throughout his career, Werner Herzog has shared a deep connection with his daring explorer subjects, that’s again true with Nomad: In the Footsteps of Bruce Chatwin the prolific filmmaker’s moving documentary tribute to his celebrated writer friend. Channeling Chatwin, whom he rightfully dubs a “kindred spirit,” Herzog embarks on an “erratic quest” for the “nature of human existence” in Nomad. The free-flowing documentary weaves together on-camera conversations, old photos, archival audio clips of Chatwin, and new non-fiction footage of Herzog’s travels — all of it narrated by the director with his typical philosophical import. Nomad marries this commentary to tableaux — of icy Patagonian lakes and tree-lined Australian paths — that convey a sense of profound beauty and primordial mystery, the latter enhanced by Ernst Reijseger’s score of tribal chants and orchestral arrangements. –Variety“A poignant testament to two friends' shared curiosity about the world.” Hollywood Reporter“Nomad: In the Footsteps of Bruce Chatwin paints the picture of a man who was complex, complicated, talented and unparalleled. And perhaps above all, very loved.” The Globe and MailCast Werner Herzog, Bruce Chatwin, Karin Eberhard
