“Camino the Journey to Santiago”, is a short Camino documentary directed by Matthew Nothelfer & Alicia Wszelaki. It was presented at the 1st Camino de Santiago film Festival last week in Santiago (June 2013).
I was so lucky to get to see this documentary before it was shown in Santiago, and loved it!
I have written earlier about my thoughts about the “Walking the Camino” documentary directed by Lydia Smith, and I think this short documentary and Lydia’s really complement each other well. Lydia has a longer, more in depth film, while Alicia and Matthew has created a shorter, but very moving film. It is about 25 minutes long with fantastic footage of the Camino. The fantastic footage and the fact that not a single word is spoken, creates a special feeling. I think the fact that not a word is spoken makes it better. The trailer above give s you an idea of what to expect.
The soundtrack to the film is written by Andy Reed, he explains in the video below how he wrote the music.
