Director Chloe Zhao has quickly become the favourite in this year's Oscar race, winning the coveted audience award at the 2020 Toronto Film Festival for her drama Nomadland.

To celebrate this exciting new voice in contemporary cinema, Cinema Nova presents a retrospective season of the filmmaker's 2017 drama THE RIDER - winner of 24 awards including Best Feature at the Gotham Awards, Hamburg Film Festival and Athens Film Festival.

Back home, Brady finds himself wondering what he has to live for when he can no longer do what gives him a sense of purpose: to ride and compete.
