MFF film advisory board member John Horn (host, KPCC’s The Frame) talks with writer/director Chloe Zhao, producer and actor, Frances McDormand, and the real nomads — Swankie, Linda May, Bob Wells, and Derek Endres — following the US Premiere of NOMADLAND at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

NOMADLAND, which took the top prize at both the Venice and Toronto International Film Festivals, follows the story of Fern (Frances McDormand), who after losing everything in the Great Recession embarks on a journey through the American West, living as a van-dwelling modern-day nomad.
