Documentary follows inspiring voyage from Ireland to Spain
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.
