A Film Event:  “Come Walk with Me” ~ Phil’s Camino       
Annie O’Neil, Director/Producer

Saturday, February 10, 2:00 to 5:00pm

Award-winning, short documentary, Phil’s Camino, tells the story of free spirit Phil, a man living with Stage 4 cancer and dreaming of walking the 500 mile spiritual pilgrimage, Camino de Santiago, across Spain. Unable to make the trip, he does the next best thing: he builds a camino in the forest behind his house, starts to walk, and traces his progress on a map. Along the way he realizes his true pilgrimage is the one he travels within. Phil's journey is one of hope, acceptance & freedom. It is sure to inspire anyone who has ever dreamed of doing something that sounded impossible. Phil’s Camino premiered at SXSW International Film Festival, won Best Short Documentary at Black Hills Film Festival and Audience Favorite at Palm Springs Int’l ShortFest. The event will begin with an introduction & presentation by Annie O’Neil on her incredible documentary followed by a discussion of the film and Spanish Tapas for refreshments to bring the flavors of the Camino to Mary & Joseph.
