Walking the Camino: Six Ways to Santiago follows various pilgrims, from ages 3 to 73, as they attempt to cross an entire country on foot – with only a backpack, a pair of boots and an open mind. Driven by an inexplicable calling and a grand sense of adventure, we witness the Camino’s magnetic and miraculous power to change lives. Each pilgrim throws themselves heart and soul into their incredibly challenging trek to Santiago de Compostela, and most importantly, their personal journey to themselves.

Time to revisit Emily Carr with fresh eyes and renewed enthusiasm in the wake of (amazingly!) the first UK exhibition of her work, currently showing in London. The British critics have compared the work to Van Gogh. "Carr’s landscapes are as exhilarating as the places they represent," wrote The Guardian. This insightful, impressionistic documentary catches her irrepressible spirit. "The definitive critical film portrait of Emily Carr." (Georgia Straight).

"Ambitious, impressionistic, and endowed with a stunning wealth of archival imagery, Winds of Heaven stands as the definitive, critical film portrait of Emily Carr." Janet Smith, Georgia Straight
