In May of 2011 Martin Sheen starred in a film called “The Way”, directed by his son, Emilio Estevez.The DVD was released in the Autumn. It is the moving story of an American businessman whose son dies in Northern Spain. Sheen views his son’s body and arranges for the cremation so that he can return home with the ashes. When police hand over his son’s possessions, however, the father realises that the boy was planning to travel along the Camino de Santiago from Roncesvalles to Santiago de Compostela, part of a route that is taken by pilgrims from all over the world.
Billed as “A journey that will test his courage, awaken his heart and change his life forever” the film depicts the story of that walk and the fascinating interaction that takes place with all manner of pilgrims along the route giving an overview of the territory covered, the places to
stay and what life is like along the way. Martin and Emilio are both natives of Spain and in making this film, are in fact returning to the area where they were born. The film gives a fascinating insight into the whole pilgrimage experience and highlights the fact that all sorts of people, for all sorts of reasons, spiritual, cultural, philosophical, or simply for the sheer joy of travel,discipline themselves to do this walk over and again.
