Martin Sheen Raves About The Camino Documentary!

Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez presented a sneak peak of The Way – their upcoming feature film about El Camino de Santiago – at Georgetown University on 18 February 2011. During the Q&A afterwards, Lydia B Smith – Director/Producer of The Camino Documentary – stood up to congratulate the filmmakers, and Martin Sheen couldn’t help but comment on the documentary.

El Camino de Santiago is a medieval pilgrimage that at its height had a million pilgrims a year walking the route. It fell into disuse until in the 1980s Brazilian writer Paulo Coelho was forced to walk the route as a penance and wrote his account in The Pilgrimage, since then it has seen an exponential increase in pilgrims, the numbers peaking in Holy Years.
