The road trip drama Nomadland by US-based Chinese director Chloe Zhao on Saturday won the Golden Lion award for best film at the Venice Film Festival.
The film, starring double-Oscar winner Frances McDormand, is about a widow who takes to the road in a van when she loses her home.
Zhao won the award 10 years after the last woman to do so, Sofia Coppola, who received a Golden Lion for her film “Somewhere.”
