Doc­u­men­tary fol­lows in­spir­ing voy­age from Ire­land to Spain

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

MER­MAID Arts Cen­tre will screen The Camino Voy­age on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 13, at 8 p.m. A crew in­clud­ing a writer, two mu­si­cians, an artist and a stone­ma­son em­bark on the Camino by sea in a tra­di­tional boat that they built them­selves. The film fol­lows an in­spir­ing, and dan­ger­ous, 2,500 km mod­ern day Celtic odyssey all the way from Ire­land to North­ern Spain. This in­ti­mate doc­u­men­tary charts the tri­als and tribu­la­tions of a voy­age that in the words of the poet and crew mem­ber Danny Sheehy, took ‘sweat, blood and blis­ters to com­plete, while deep­en­ing and re­new­ing friend­ships, cre­ativ­ity and spir­i­tu­al­ity in the process’. Set­ting sail in their own hand­made tra­di­tional boat, called a ‘Naomhóg’ against the back­drop of the vast ocean, Danny and his crew share mu­sic, sto­ries and wise words. Joy­ously ad­ven­tur­ous and pro­foundly en­no­bled by the task, this eclec­tic crew shared a re­mark­able jour­ney. Win­ner of the Au­di­ence Award for Best Fea­ture – Din­gle In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val.

Tick­ets are €8.50 or €7 con­ces­sion and avail­able at mer­maid­arts­cen­tre.ie.
