Pilgrimage (trailer)

The movie Pilgrimage by Brendan Muldowney was expected for some time now.

"Starring Tom Holland, Richard Armitage and Jon Bernthal. 
Ireland, 1209. An island on the edge of the world. A small group of monks begin a reluctant pilgrimage across an island torn between centuries of tribal warfare and the growing power of Norman invaders. Escorting their monastery’s holiest relic to Rome, the monks’ progress is seen through the eyes of a pious young novice and a mute lay-brother with a violent past. As the true material, political and religious significance of the bejewelled relic becomes dangerously apparent, their path to the east coast becomes increasingly fraught with danger. The monks belatedly realise that in this wild land of ancient superstitions, the faith that binds them together may ultimately lead to their destruction."

Here's the trailer...

Shikoku oncemore

Okay, this time four video's from Japan. From the Shikoku Kodo, the 88 temples pilgrimage route.

First Sharla in Japan (2016) introduces the Iwayaji Temple #45

Then Following the arrows (2014) invites us to have a photographic tour of the route. Enjoy!

Going on to Oku Japan's two introductions to Kobo-Daishi's Skikoku.
The first makes you want to go, the second provides more detail.



And finally a personal story from Todd Reeves on his Shikoku Henro

Camino Ingles

A relative short camino from Ferrol in the north to Santiago.
But don't let the distance get in the way of walking this fine camino.
And it's not that easy, these about 118 km.

Something grand

Here's a link to a documentary by Matthew Anderson.

He says...
"Below you will find a Vimeo link to my 2012 film “Something Grand”, a 26-minute journey with pilgrims starting out on the 800-km trek to Santiago, as I ask them: “Why are you doing this?”"
