"Nomadland" wins top prize at Venice film festival
Written by: Actualité à la Une

Venice - "Nomadland" by director Chloe Zhao won top prize at the Venice film festival on Saturday, the first woman to win the prize in a decade. The film, an ode to American wanderlust and the highs and lows of the open road, won the Golden Lion in a competition billed as a relaunch of global cinema bruised by the coronavirus crisis. The 77th edition of the "Mostra" festival took place in a year when theatres have been closed, film sets shut down and moviegoers forced to embrace streaming video at home instead, during months of coronavirus-imposed lockdown.
