Synopsis by Augustine Chay

Writer-director Werner Herzog’s poignant documentary is a tribute to his longtime friend, the late British travel writer Bruce Chatwin. Three decades after Chatwin's death from HIV, Herzog retraces his travels to Patagonia, the Black Mountains in Wales, and the Australian outback to illuminate his life, his legacy, and his transformative encounters with indigenous communities. He also interviews Chatwin’s widow, Elizabeth Chatwin, and his biographer Nicholas Shakespeare.
