Walking the Camino: Six Ways to Santiago (2013, Lydia Smith, U.S., 85 min.)

https://intersections.psu.edu/walking-the-camino-2/

Since the 9th century A.D., pilgrims have walked the Camino de Santiago across northern Spain to the Santiago de Compostela. Today, more than 200,000 people every year from across the globe set out on the 500-mile journey. Along the way, they stay in hostels known as albergues and receive food and medical treatment from volunteers, gradually becoming a mobile, extended family of fellow travelers. This uplifting, moving, and at times funny film follows six pilgrims overcoming blisters, bad knees, heartache, self-doubt, and addiction to discover something inside themselves.
