About:
A personal reflection on the master filmmaker’s friendship with the late English travel writer and adventurer.

Though Bruce Chatwin passed away in 1989, his friendship has clearly left an indelible mark on Werner Herzog. In this homage, the German filmmaker sets out on a quest of sorts, revisiting locations notable to Chatwin, or in some way linking their kindred spirits. In separate chapters, titled after Chatwin’s books, Herzog travels from Patagonia, the site of a family legend that inspired Chatwin’s adventurous career; to the Australian outback, where Chatwin studied Aboriginal songlines; while also featuring him in conversation with Chatwin’s widow and biographer. While not amongst Herzog’s most accomplished projects, this tribute maintains his signature style and has its own smaller-scale appeal.
