Walking the Camino: Six Ways to Santiago follows various pilgrims, from ages three to 73, as they attempt to cross an entire country on foot - with only a backpack, a pair of boots and an open mind. Driven by an inexplicable calling and a grand sense of adventure, each pilgrim throws themselves heart and soul into their physical trek to Santiago de Compostela, and most importantly, their personal journey to themselves. Whatever their motivation, no one can predict just how their paths will unfold, what personal demons or angels they will face, or what transformations they will undergo by trail's end. Called "A brilliant documentary" by Martin Sheen, this multiple award-winning film has been selling out screenings worldwide. Written by
Nowadays we are constantly bombarded by disaster, horror and
destruction on a daily basis. When I left the theatre after viewing
"Walking the Camino" I was totally relaxed and felt that there was a
greater purpose to life. As often happens to me, I had just finished
reading a book by Paulo Coelho called "The Pilgrimage" where he
describes his experiences on the trek to Santiago de Compostela. He had
some pretty momentous stories to tell, so naturally I was extremely
interested to find out that others have been doing this walk and also
that a movie had been made about it.
What makes the movie work for me was that we follow the trek of various
couples and individuals from all sorts of different ages, countries of
origin and occupations. Without exception, they all seem to experience
trans-formative events along their journey and are far more in tune
with themselves and the world at the end of the journey. The excessive
walking and exercise seems to clean out their system from physical and
emotional junk and allows them to appreciate the world that exists
right in front of them on a NOW basis. Filming the end of the walk must
have been really tough for the film maker, because all the subjects
were so emotional about what they had been through and experienced.
