Camino Films and Videos

The-Way-Emilio-Estevez-Martin-SheenOne of the best ways to understand what the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage is all about is to watch one of the films and documentaries about it. The first film that  introduced me to the Camino was The Way, with Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez. It’s no surprise that The Way inspired many people to walk the Camino.

Walking the Camino: Six Ways to SantiagoI am a fan of the Camino documentary Walking the Camino: Six Ways to Santiago.  I had the opportunity to see it and meet  co-producer Annie O’Neil  when the film was screened in Berkeley on March  2015.  I highly recommend this film to anyone who wants to see the real Camino experience—from blisters and debilitating injury—to camaraderie and unexpected romance.

Wayfaring Wayfaring – A Jaunt Along The Camino de Santiago
This film follows Scott “Squatch” Herriott, an Appalachian and Pacific Crest Trail veteran, on the Camino Francés in the spring of 2013. He interviews pilgrims, albergue owners, hospitaleros (volunteers of the Camino), and a few locals who like to flirt with young peregrinas. Read Film Review.

Paulo Coelho's documentaryAnother good documentary, El Camino a Santiago, follows Paulo Coelho’s return to Spain. The Camino is a special place for the author, for it was during his Camino that he realized his dream was to become a writer. There are a few surprises – his wife’s art and his decision about Cebrero, for example. There is also an epic version of Paulo singing Frank Sinatra’s song “My Way.” I stumbled upon this on DVD in my local library, but the full 42 minute video is on YouTube.

  1. Has anyone seen the Donkeys and Disillusionment film?

    Its showing at a Camino fundraiser on the Sunshine Coast in June.
    Its about a guy from Sydney that gives up the city life, buys a Donkey in France and just goes for it.
    It follows, over a 6 year period, the life stories of 5 pilgrims and San Pastue the donkey. Walking with them on the Camino and following up 6 years later when each pilgrim has returned home. Amazing stories from the camino!
