08-03-2021 07:00

Chloe Zhao is 38 years old. She comes from China. She lives in the US. She is a director. Zhao wins a Golden Globe last week. It is an award. She wins for best director.

She is the first Asian woman who wins. She is the second woman in history. Barbra Streisand wins the Golden Globe for the best director in 1984.

Zhao makes a film called ’Nomadland’. It is about a woman. The woman travels around America. She is a nomad. Some parts of the film come from something that really happens.

Many Asian people are happy. They say that Zhao is very talented. Some people in the US do not like Asians who live there. Zhao can help change the situation.

Difficult words: director (a person who tells actors what to do in a film or play), nomad (a person who travels from one place to another, and he does not live in one place a long time), talented (when you can do something very well).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
