Exploring themes of spirituality, wellbeing and religion, this is the inspirational journey of six strangers from New Zealand and Australia walking the 800km Camino de Santiago to overcome the personal and physical trauma that life has dealt them. Through blisters, shin splints and heat, the Camino forces pilgrims to defy their age and physical ability, while also acting as a catalyst for change. Both heart-breaking and inspirational, 'Camino Skies' is an uplifting story about everyday people doing the extraordinary.
I found this documentary very interesting because of the six characters and their unusual journey to Camino de Santiago. The background score and music adds life to the frames and highlights the emotions of each character. I found a few shots unnecessary, like where the characters are looking at the road and route etc. which simply established their journey but wasn't really required. I really liked the shots where people are on their way to camino and spend some time on the streets with the localities, that is interesting and kind of a cultural mix. Moreover, the way all the characters were unknown at the start but later the way they build their bonds with each other over the journey is so good to see. I found a lot of hidden learning in the entire documentary. It's a good watch for people who's life is tragic at the moment and would like a get away, join virtual journey of Camino :)
