Colonial shows El Camino doc

Apr 14, 2017
A new documentary explores “walking the Camino.”

Belfast — “Looking for Infinity: El Camino” (2017, UK/Spain/France) will be screened two times at the Colonial Theatre, 163 High St. Show times are Sunday, April 23, at 4:30 p.m.; and Monday, April 24, at 7 p.m.

The El Camino de Santiago is a 500-mile pilgrimage with as many reasons to walk as there are footsteps. The walk follows an early Roman trade route crossing the north of Spain, and pilgrims have been walking it for centuries.

These days’ walkers, who come from all around the world, may be spiritual seekers, physical fitness buffs, adventurers, foot-loose travelers and those bent on self-renewal and self-discovery. Whatever the reason, more than 200,000 people undertake the walk every year.

At Monday night’s screening, there will be an opportunity for local people who have walked the trail to talk about their experiences. The film follows walkers the length of the trail and, between their personal stories and the powerful visuals of the changing landscapes, viewers may want to lace up their walking shoes.

Tickets are $9, $8 older than 64 and $6 younger than 13. For more information, call 338-1975; or visit colonialtheatre.com or the Colonial’s Facebook page.
