1:20pm - Sunday, Jun 20, 2021

Following the economic collapse of a company town in rural Nevada, Fern (Frances McDormand) packs her van and sets off on the road exploring a life outside of conventional society as a modern-day nomad. The third feature film from director ChloƩ Zhao (THE RIDER), NOMADLAND has won numerous accolades AND awards this year (including Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director, and McDormand's third for Best Actress), and features real-life nomads Linda May, Swankie and Bob Wells as Fern's mentors and comrades in her exploration through the vast landscape of the American West.

"A poetic character study on the forgotten and downtrodden, Nomadland beautifully captures the restlessness left in the wake of the Great Recession." (Rotten Tomatoes)

"Life on the road has never been so tenderly captured, politically alive and profoundly moving." (Empire Magazine)

"Caught somewhere between gazing longingly at the past and squaring up to the future, Nomadland feels like the only film that stands a chance of saying all the right things." (NME)
