Congratulations to Old Brightonian Chloé Zhao, who became the second woman ever to win the award for best director in last night's BAFTAs awards ceremony. Chloé's remarkable film Nomadland also received trophies for best picture, best actress and best cinematography.
Nomadland tells the story of a woman in her sixties who, having lost everything in the Great Recession, embarks on a journey through the American West, living as a van-dwelling modern-day nomad. In her acceptance speech for the best director award, Chloé said she thinks she will have made her Brighton College teachers "very proud". All we can say in response is yes - we are all very proud of you, Chloe!
