22 Minute Video Goes Behind the Scenes of NOMADLAND

Nomadland behind the scenes
A new featurette explores the making of Chloé Zhao's acclaimed film.

Ahead of its UK/ROI release on Disney+ later this month, a behind the scenes video has been released for Chloé Zhao's Nomadland.

Inspired by journalist Jessica Bruder’s 2017 non-fiction book 'Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century', the Oscar frontrunner sees Frances McDormand play an aging woman forced to live a nomadic life in her van following the economic collapse of her Nevada company town. As with Zhao's previous films Songs My Brothers Taught Me and The RiderNomadland features amateur performers playing versions of themselves.

Nomadland is on Disney+ UK/ROI from April 30th and in UK cinemas from May 17th.

Check out the featurette below.

The official synopsis reads:

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 Chloé Zhao, NOMADLAND features real nomads Linda May, Swankie and Bob Wells as Fern’s mentors and comrades in her exploration through the vast landscape of the American West.
