- FILM SCREENING: "WALKING EL CAMINO: SIX WAYS TO SANTIAGO"
Directed and produced by the American Lydia B. Smith, this documentary has managed to captivate both the sensitivity of experienced pilgrims and future walkers. Through the story of its six protagonists, the film is evocative, as well as inspiring, not only for those who already know the Way but also for those who have not yet traveled, and who when leaving the cinema promise or want to do it one day. Followed by Q&A with Director Lydia B. Smith and Antonio Caballero, Director of the Spanish Resource Center.
