“Walking the Camino: Six Ways to Santiago”

Posted on Updated on

Recently, I was able to attend a documentary at the Belcourt Theater in Nashville, TN titled “Walking the Camino: Six Ways to Santiago.”  You can watch the trailer and learn more about screenings near you by going to Caminodocumentary.org.  After the film, the director, Lydia Smith, was gracious enough to spend time doing a Q&A with the audience.  The film itself was an extremely accurate look at life on the Camino.  The film was able to capture the physical and mental aspects that one goes through on the Camino.  This documentary was so well done largely due to the fact that the director, Lydia, walked the Camino Frances herself in 2008.  She was able to experience firsthand the hi’s and lo’s that nearly every pilgrim faces during their own walk.  As I sat there watching six pilgrims travel their own Camino, I got to see some of the same landmarks and albergues I visited and briefly relive the thoughts and emotions I went through a year ago on my own Camino.  Although “The Way” is a great film, which partially peaked my interests in the Camino in the first place, “Walking the Camino…”  really captured what life was like on a daily basis.  For anyone out there interested in the Camino, I encourage you to visit their website and do what you can to support the crew as they travel across country showing this film.
