Rochester Premiere. El Camino de Santiago was born in the Middle Ages when pilgrims began walking the path to the tomb of St. James in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. While their numbers have waxed and waned with war and tribulations, pilgrims continue to this day, walking the five hundred miles on foot. Filmmaker Smith walked it herself in 2008 and came back to follow six individuals, all with their own reasons for braving blisters, rain, heat and cold, and sometimes less than idyllic accommodations, each with their own reasons for walking the Way of St. James. The Camino has been declared a European Cultural Route and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Join us for a post-show discussion on walking the Camino de Santiago with Jeff Stanin, George Eastman House staff member, who walked it in 2013.

    Afterwards we had some discussion of a statue in Mt Hope cemetary re pilgrims. The statue itself is not related to the El Camino, but is dedicated to or is about all pilgrims.

    My thanks to the staff at Friends of Mt Hope for researching this.

    ==============
    I think you may be referring to sculptor Nicola Cantalamessa-Papotti's [masked]) statue titled "The Weary Pilgrim" that is located at the Aaron Erickson's plot in section G. The statue has a scallop shell on its shoulder. This is described in our literature as an item traditionally carried or worn by Medieval Christians on holy pilgrimage.

    Thanks to everyone who showed up. Great turnout for an 'esoteric' documentary. For the record, I found the movie spot-on in describing the feelings, emotions and attitudes of the people that I met on my camino, not to mention my feelings personally.

    It was a very informative film and discussion at Dyden. Great conversation continued at Starry Nites! Thanks Larry for hosting this event.

    Movie starts at 8:00. Run time is just under 90 minutes, so it should end by 9:30.
    There is a discussion after which I plan to attend, at least for 20 - 25 minutes.
    Following that, Starry Nights around 10:00 pm unless something exceptional occurs.
    Thanks for the suggestion, but I figure to stay in the neighborhood.

      Who said anything about bad experiences? I like Starry Nites.

    • Larry O.

      Now I got the message on how you used 'rude'. My mistake.

      September 27, 2014

  • Sandra D.

    Hi

    With all the back & fourth regarding fees & trying to understand how everything works, I apologize but I won't be able to make the event tonight after all.

    Everyone Enjoy~

  • Larry O.

    Folks,
    The turnout is way beyond expectations. I am gratified that so many find the subject of tonight's event interesting.

    Some will want to stay for the in-theater discussion and some will want to head out immediately for the meetup group discussion.

    Some will want Starry Nights and some will want the Park Ave Pub.

    It gets too complicated to balance all these choices. To keep it simple, I am only considering the coffee choices.

    Option 1) Park Ave Pub/Restaurant (650 Park)
    Option 2) Starry Nights

    See you tonight.

    • Larry O.

      Google says eight dollars

      September 27, 2014

  • Sandra D.

    Ok, thx Larry but what's the admission cost?

    September 26, 2014

  • Larry O.

    Here's the plan for the after movie get-together:

    Not staying for post-show discussion: Park Avenue Pub-Restaurant, 650 Park Ave next door to Jines, which is on the corner of Park and Berkeley.

    Staying for post-show discussion: Starry Nights.

    September 26, 2014

  • Larry O.

    Sandra,
    The only fee is the admission ticket at the Dryden Theater.

  • Sandra D.

    Hi I'm brand new to this, so there's no fee?

  • John

    I hope to make this one. I have a family member in hospital so things can change without notice.

    For those trying to find this on IMDB or RT the title is "Walking the Camino" (no El), directed by Lydia Smith. The Washington Post gave it 2.5 stars, but called it "inspiring", mostly because of the scenery captured.

  • pacho

    I hope we can have a discussions - especially since
    i need to walk the Camino for a film project i;m doing!

    September 24, 2014

    I checked Park Ave, and suggest the best place for us
    to meet is Park Avenue Pub-Restaurant, 650 Park Ave next door to Jines, which is on the corner of Park and Berkeley. It's not crowded, has tables we can push together. . There are other options, but this has space and is reasonably quiet we we can talk!.

    I would love to hike this trail. Seems more doable than the appalachian trail.

  • beverly Z.

    I'd really like to see this, but I'm committed to a reunion in PA. on the 27th. Darn.

    An article entitled Pilgrimages Past, about Naz alum who did this walk was featured in my most recent Naz Connections. I was about to add it to my "bucket list". I am eager to see this movie.
