Hellow all.
Lissie45 made mention of this film . So I thought I would add some info to this .
The film is about three New Zealanders and three Australians Walking the Camino. We all had grief and issues, to deal with and I feel the film portrays this in a very sensitive manner.
I am one of the people that walked in the film( I am the older chap) and the younger chap ( Mark) is my son in law.
If you search on some of my older posts you will realize why the two of us walked Basically we walked after the death of Maddy my grand daughter mark's daughter.
It is a challenging movie to watch but if you get to see it you will be pleased you did.
The film is being released in Christchurch on Friday still tickets left ( I think) Then released through the country in the next two weeks then after that in Australia for times and dates have a look at Camino skies facebook.
The trailer is on Utube.
Thank you kind regards God bless.

I am so sorry for son-in-law and your unfathomable loss. I wish there was a way I could watch this film. I will check the Facebook page for alternative screening methods. I wish there was a website where "Camino like" films could be seen. I don't now what other types of films could be there but I think you know what I mean. A dear Camino friend from Ireland told me of a documentaries of Irishmen rowing long boats to Spain and recreating the trip that Pilgrims from Ireland took centuries ago.
I hope your Camino was of some solace. Bless you both.

Hi 👋
Loved the trailer - excellent production and such good hearted support for each other .
Would love to watch the film / happy to support it .
There are homes for Camino Films with far less production values on Netflix and Amazon Video - this should join them .
Good Luck / Good Way

I stayed at the albergue in Fonfria the same night as all of you and had some really nice conversations with another of the walkers and some of the production crew. Good people all around! And that short experience made me really want to see the film.

From those encounters and watching the trailer, I believe it has captured something very special. I hope I get the opportunity to see for myself. 😊 I'm also in the U.S., so fingers crossed for showings here, or streaming on something.

Wishing all of you every success!!

How brave you all are.....Looks like an extremely reflective movie (80 minutes) beautifully captured by the production team. It's on August 1 st HOTA performing arts centre, Bundall GOLD COAST.
I'm bringing all my friends along so they can get an idea of why I go back every year, having done 3 CF, Ingles C, & Portugese C
from Porto. I also give talks about walking the Caminos to pass on the benefits.

Please see the Official Camino Skies Website and facebook page for full list of Theatres throughout Aust and New Zealand.

Well that is disappointing!!! My wife (Aussie) and I (Kiwi) are flying out from Melbourne on July 30th to do Camino Frances. I hope there is somewhere where we can see the film when we get back in mid-September! The trailer looks fantastic!!!

The film opened today in Perth at Luna Leederville. I found it extremely sad. Without detracting in any way from the grief and hardships of the participants, I have to say that not everyone has such a difficult journey. Not everyone is suffering from the loss of a loved one. Not everyone is in such physical pain. I do bits of the Camino each year and enjoy doing what I can. I love the food, the scenery and the history. Don't let the film put you off!

I agree with some of your words but, this film was not meant to be like all the others, it was and is meant to show the very real struggle which some of us go th to keep on going, through in order to do and achievie something we love doing, especially my own struggle.

In responding to you Margaret, i in no way wish to denigrate anything you have wriritten. Cheers..susanawee

Hi Margaret
I saw Camino Skies last Tuesday here in Adelaide at a special screening which included a Q&A with the film makers. Quite opposite to your experience I found the film quite transformative, it reignited my passion and yearning for the Camino. Yes, the people's stories were sad but there was laughter and joy in their journeys also. Editing video footage can also be skewed to tell a particular story, much like statistics.

When I walked the Francés back in 2015 our companions were a mix of nationalities and emotions, much like any cross section of life. I don't know how this group was chosen but they could well have come together through their shared stories of loss.

I'm glad that you're progressing along the Camino and enjoying the food, scenery and history. We loved this all as well.

Buen Camino for your future journeys!

I have to agree with Margaret above. I saw Camino Skies at New Farm Cinema in Brisbane with my daughter, and had to explain to her that it was not representative of 99% of people I met when walking the Camino Frances. Most are not walking due to extreme life situations like the loss of loved ones. Most don’t find it unbearably difficult. Most dont walk with the ashes of loved ones in their backpacks for throwing into the sea at Finnestere. I’m sure the film was real for those involved, but was not indicative of the Camino I experienced or witnessed. I found it too contrived for cinematic effect, rather than an authentic depiction that the majority could identify with. Sorry but low marks from me

Most people who walk the Camino aren't pushing friends in wheelchairs. I wouldn't give the film "I'll Push You" low marks for that reason. I guess different people have different requirements for what they expect from a movie.

I've come to know of a platform called DemandFilm operating in several countries where members here live. It was mentioned in this forum in Aug/ Sept, because they were hosting a screening of the film 'The Camino Voyage'. They accept requests from the public to host screenings of films that may not be available through normal distribution (not sure of all details). Once a film is 'accepted to be hosted ', a minimum # of tickets (50) must be ordered in advance for the screening to be confirmed; so at that point you just have to get the word out so 50 TICKETS sell. IngridF in this forum mentioned, at that time, that the Canadian Association of Pigrims were monitoring it and to check their Facebook page,.... so perhaps IngridF knows more about how that works, perhaps they / you can request a screening from DemandFilm ... just look for country flags at bottom of their website site page and other links to contact them or request a screening. Camino Skies does look like a film many here, including me, would like to see. By the way the Toronto screening of Camino Voyage was a full house... so despite the logistics to manage with this approach ... it is likely to be successful if you can spread the word.

Link https://ca.demand.film/ [ Canadian site, look for country flags at bottom to find yours].
