About Chloé Zhao

Director Chloé Zhao has released three feature films — Songs My Brother Taught Me, The Rider, and Nomadland. In her first two films, Zhao employed an inventive blend of documentary and narrative, working with nonprofessional actors portraying lightly fictionalized versions of themselves in stories rooted in their own life experiences.

Zhao’s new film, Nomadland, winner of the Golden Lion at this year's Venice Film Festival, is both a refinement of that hybrid approach and a departure. Directing two-time Oscar winner Frances McDormand against the vast landscape of the American West, Zhao has accomplished new levels of authenticity and poetry. The film, already drawing much-deserved Oscar buzz, comes just ahead of another major directorial milestone for Zhao: the fall 2021 release of Marvel Studios' Eternals starring Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, and Salma Hayek.
