I read the book a couple of years ago. It profiles a number of people in this nomad situation, some by choice, some by economic necessity, some because they can't figure out how to keep it together long-term. Quite an excellent book.Nomadland (2020) with Frances McDormand on Hulu. Based on the book of the same name, it's about a woman who lost everything she had after the Great Recession and is forced to go on the road in an old van as a modern day nomad. She finds various ways to support herself working at low wage temp jobs, moving from place to place to find work and encountering people like herself just trying to survive. Quite a good movie that has been nominated for numerous awards.
When i was a teen living in ElPaso, Cantinflas often performed across the river in Juarez. I never got the chance to see him, but most of my Mexican-American friends did and they raved about him. My Spanish language skills were good enough that I would have understood everything. I will have to find the movie "Pura Vida."
Love, love, love this movie; I really identify with it. (And it's kinda the anti-It's a Wonderful Life movie; gotta love that, right?
