Phil's Camino Documentary Movie- a story of resiliency and hope

This is a cancer foundation in Colorado who is sponsoring this film for free from Apr 17-25.

"When Phil Volker was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer, he started walking. After covering 500 miles on his own personal Camino, Phil took on the Camino de Santiago.
  • The remarkable story of a Stage 4 cancer patient who discovers the secrets of living life to the fullest
  • A story of resiliency and hope when challenged by a terminal diagnosis
  • A story of learning the difference between being healed vs. being cured
  • An inspirational story for anyone who ever dreamed and then achieved the seemingly impossible
This film speaks to young viewers struggling to find themselves, to retirees and mid-lifers reflecting on their next chapters, and importantly to cancer patients, families and caregivers. For patients and caregivers, the film urges viewers to think outside the box. While the film chronicles Phil’s walks on two caminos—the one he created and the one he dreamed of walking—your camino can be as short as a walk in the park. The film suggests that a camino may be a metaphor for life, a journey that helps you look inside yourself, that pushes you to step out of your comfort zone, and most importantly, encourages you to move beyond the fears, insecurities and obstacles that limit happiness. Walking your camino can be a first step in finding a personal strategy for living well in the face of a cancer diagnosis."

Thank you very much @lisaflora for letting us know!
I heard about Phil's camino some time ago, as forum member @Dave interviewed Phil Volker for his wonderful The Camino Podcast series. Well worth listening to!
Here is a link to episode 4
I am so glad I now get to watch the film!

Thank you Lisa. I'm still not sure how to actually view this film. I have been looking on the internet for some time. Seems like you have to attend a screening, but how to find one? Is some organization doing a virtual screening that you can pay to enter? I"m guessing there are no in-person screenings during Covid? The above link seems to lead only to a pamphlet. Can anyone direct me? Maybe I have lost some grey matter during this lockdown lol....

You can find it on Vimeo (vimeo.com). If you search for "Phil's Camino" you will find it available for rent, in both the original short version (just under half an hour) and the revised longer version (almost an hour and a half). You get to the longer one by going to the page for the trailer. Since they seem to be the same price, the longer one may get you more for your money. :) -
