Walking the Camino: Six Ways to Santiago – National Film Release in NZ

Can one film motivate you to walk 500 miles?

Spain’s 1,200 year-old Camino de Santiago has attracted millions of people from all around the world to embark on an epic 500-mile pilgrimage famous for its profoundly enlightening, spiritually nourishing, and physically challenging rewards.

An ambitious, independently produced documentary, Walking the Camino captures the trials and tribulations of six modern-day pilgrims as they cope with blisters, exhaustion, loneliness, and self-doubt to triumph over the fears and prejudices that have become roadblocks in their own lives. Equipped with only a backpack, a pair of boots, and an open mind, our six pilgrims set off on individual journeys but finish together as pilgrims-in-arms unhindered by age, nationality, religious backgrounds or life experience.

Find out why audiences everywhere are raving about the film that Martin Sheen, star of The Way, calls a “brilliant documentary,” and find inspiration in the Camino and the people who brave it.
