Rating: M18 (Nudity 裸露画面)

Synopsis

Alongside a whole generation of middle-class, middle-aged Americans affected by the recession, Fern takes to the roads. Living in her van, she chases seasonal jobs as they come along, spending summers in desert communes. On her journey, Fern meets many other nomads. They enter Fern’s world, like short chapters in a story, each with a wealth of tales from their own travels. While this camaraderie gives her temporary respite, Fern’s heart lies in wandering. Her unwillingness to settle down propels her to move steadfastly onwards.

Chloé Zhao presents a tender antithesis to the American dream. Her sensitivity to transitory connections and instinctive empathy craft a deeply meaningful, circular tale of introspection.

Film Credits

Director

Born in Beijing, Chloé Zhao is a writer, director and producer currently based in the United States. Zhao’s previous features Songs My Brothers Taught Me (2015) and The Rider (2017) question intimately the American way of life. Zhao continues this discourse with Nomadland, which won the Golden Lion at this year’s Venice Film Festival.
