Trailer for Herzog's Doc 'Nomad: In the Footsteps of Bruce Chatwin'

"It's in the landscape... landscape of his soul." Music Box Films has released the official trailer for Werner Herzog's latest documentary film, called Nomad: In the Footsteps of Bruce Chatwin. This originally premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year, and went on to play at the Telluride Film Festival, Sheffield Doc/Fest, and Vancouver Film Festival. When travel writer Bruce Chatwin was dying of AIDS, his friend Werner Herzog made a final visit. As a parting gift, Chatwin gave him his rucksack. Now thirty years later, Herzog sets out on his own journey, inspired by Chatwin's passion for the nomadic life. His deeply personal portrait of Chatwin, featuring archival discoveries, clips, and a mound of "brontosaurus skin," encompasses their shared interest in aboriginal / tribal cultures, ancient rituals, and the mysteries stitching together life on earth. I'm usually always interested in watching Herzog's documentaries, no matter what they are about.
