28th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
director: Sebastien Wielemans
original title: Nomad Solitude
running time: 87 min.
synopsisNomadism today is no longer just an expression of a traditional way of life or a free choice for young people, but an imposed necessity for many seniors in the US. For them, a house on four wheels remains the only economically affordable option. In this time-lapse documentary, we follow the lives of three women on a long journey across the United States as their lives have been transformed. How do they cope with radical change? And what do loved-ones and friends have to say about their decision? These questions are also answered in the film, which anchors the philosophy of desolation in a broader political and social context.
“Each fleeing a part of their past, these three reckless women criss-cross the roads in the hope of rebuilding their lives.”
