Werner Herzog - likely the most prolific filmmaker - turns the camera on himself and his decades-long friendship with late travel writer, novelist and journalist 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 encompasses their shared interest in aboriginal cultures, ancient rituals, and the mysteries stitching together life on earth.
Chatwin was the author of In Patagonia (1977), and Songlines (1987), among others. "Conveys a sense of profound beauty and primordial mystery."-Variety. "A poignant testament to two friends' shared curiosity about the world." -Hollywood Reporter. NOMAD: IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF BRUCE CHATWIN begins streaming today, 8/26.
