The late great travel writer Bruce Chatwin (In Patagonia, Songlines) and legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog were close friends united by their shared passion for exploration, adventure and an eternal wanderlust. In this fascinating travelogue, Herzog traces the steps of Chatwin’s most treasured locales, from South America to Australia to the UK, discovering myth, culture, and landscape along the way. Both a poignant tribute to Chatwin and a rousing testament to the mysteries of the world waiting to be discovered, Herzog has made one of his most personal and moving documentaries to date.

The film will be available for 48 hours from when you start the stream. Please note streaming is only possible from inside Canada. Need assistance? Visit our FAQ page or email us at
