Nomadland 2021

Based on the economic collapse of 2008 a woman Fern (Francis McDormand) loses everything when her husband dies and her entire town is virtually wipes her small town in Nevada off the map. She ends up living in Van as a modern day nomad. This gut wrenching story by Chinese director Chloe Zhao uses real life Nomads in this story of a subculture who live their lives off the land often traveling from town to town exploring the western landscape showing the challenges and struggles of an often forgotten group of Americans.
