Walking the Camino: Six Ways to Santiago
Extended Run, now playing thru 10/16!
Since the ninth century, millions of world travelers have embarked on an epic pilgrimage across northern Spain that is known to be profoundly enlightening, spiritually nourishing and physically challenging. Today, several hundred thousand people a year descend on this mostly unpaved path with little more than a backpack and a pair of boots. Through Walking the Camino: Six Ways to Santiago, we are able to journey into the hearts and minds of six modern-day pilgrims as they cope with blisters, exhaustion, loneliness and self-doubt to triumph over fears and prejudices that have become roadblocks to living a fulfilled life. Find out why audiences everywhere are raving about the film that Martin Sheen, star of The Way, calls a “brilliant documentary.”
Veteran filmmaker Lydia B. Smith makes her feature documentary directorial debut with “Walking the Camino.” After earning a degree in film from the UC Berkeley, she worked on documentaries in the Bay Area for several years with “Walking the Camino” Senior Producer, Theresa Tollini-Coleman, as well as with “Best Documentary (Short Subject)” Oscar winner Vivienne Verdon-Roe.
