Walking the Camino: Six Ways to Santiago

When: Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 16 2014

For several hundred years, Christian pilgrims have traveled a trail across northern Spain on their way to a shrine memorializing St. James the Great. In recent years, the 500-mile path has attracted people from around the world who complete the hike, or at least portions of it, for personal, spiritual reasons rather than religious ones. Walking the Camino documents the journeys of a wide swath of hikers, from a pair of Canadian retirees to a Brazilian woman looking to defeat depression to a guy just looking for a physical challenge. Director Lydia B. Smith will be on hand for the Oct. 10 and 11 screenings while Gonzaga alum Maggie Cech, who hiked the trail in 2013, will answer questions on Oct. 12.
