“Nomadland”, which deals with a group of contemporary “hippies” roaming the United States in their buses, emerged victorious, on Sunday, during the “Golden Globe”, one of the most prominent American film awards.

The film won the Best Dramatic Film Award, and its director Chloe Gao (38 years) won the Best Direction Award. Born in Beijing and based in the United States, Gao became the first Asian woman in Golden Globe history to win the Best Director award. She is also the second woman to receive this award, after Barbara Streisand in 1984.

The award raised admiration in China, at the weekend, as local media published many articles praising the “Chinese director”, which were described as “national pride.”

But soon, the circulation of statements attributed to Chloe Gao, in an interview published by an American magazine in 2013, that included criticism of her mother country.

The director confirmed, according to what is shown by the presumed screen shot of this article, that China is “a place dominated by lies.” In another interview spread on social media, she said, “The United States has become my country.”

The statements attributed to the director do not appear on the websites of the media with which she was supposed to be interviewed. But it sparked a wave of condemnation in China, where some Internet users described Chloe Gao, on Saturday, as a “traitor.”

The hashtag “Nomadland” is no longer present on the Chinese social network “Weibo”, but talks about the film and its director remained without apparent censorship.

Nomadland will be released officially in China on April 23rd. However, this date is no longer visible on the main cinema platforms in the country, and the release of the film has become uncertain, according to “Freight” magazine on Friday.

The China Association of Artistic and Experimental Film did not immediately respond to AFP’s calls.
