What is it about Spain’s 1200 year-old Camino de Santiago trail that lures people from all over the world to spend a month or more walking the 500 miles with little more than a backpack and a pair of boots? Filmmaker Lydia B. Smith undertook this life-changing journey and shares her experiences in her award-winning documentary Walking The Camino. Be among the first to enjoy this film… there will be a screening on Tuesday, November 11th at the Siff Cinema Uptown in Seattle at 7PM. If you can’t make that one, join Lydia on Wednesday, November 12th at 7PM at Queen Anne United Methodist Church for a screening followed by a Q and A. Click here for more info.
