Chloé Zhao : The World Beyond

La cinéaste sino-américaine Chloé Zhao est en pleine ascension depuis l’obtention du Lion d’or à Venise pour le tout récent Nomadland (2020), son troisième long métrage. Ayant quitté la Chine à 15 ans pour l’Angleterre puis les États-Unis, cette cinéaste est préoccupée par les lendemains qui chantent (ou pas) et nous accompagnons ses personnages, confrontés à un avenir incertain. Subtilement, elle renouvelle dans chacun de ses films une mythologie solidement ancrée dans le cinéma américain, où le territoire définit l’espoir de tous, mais aussi l’angoissante infinité des possibles.
