Back
With screenings running until 25th of November, the closing session of the 14th edition of LEFFEST - Lisbon & Sintra Film Festival is tomorrow. At 7pm, the Tivoli Theater hosts the LEFFEST award ceremony, followed by the screening of the highly anticipated Nomadland, by Chloé Zhao.

Inspired by the book Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century by Jessica Bruder, it involves the participation of true nomads Linda May, Charlene Swankie and Bob Wells, who interpret the role of mentors and travel companions of Fern, a woman who has lost everything during the Great Recession and who decides to set off with a van into a modern nomadic journey through the vast American Midwest.

Chloé Zhao’s third feature-film has been widely critically acclaimed after premiering at the Venice Film Festival and winning the prestigious Golden Lion award.
