“A walk; a pilgrimage, an odyssey for the planet. Five hundred miles from London to Glasgow Cop26: Eight weeks, 56 days and more than 56 host organisations, over a thousand walkers and thirty rolls of 16mm celluloid film.”
This film documents the Camino to COP26: a people’s walk carrying a message of love, hope, grief, fear, and connection with the natural world to leaders deciding on the future of our climate.
Filmmaker Benjamin Wigley walked with the group, who became known as ‘Caministas’, filming their experiences and capturing the sense of pilgrimage on this emotional and purposeful journey. More than a thousand walkers, aged from eight to 80 plus, joined the Camino for a few hours, a day or more, or completing the entire route to Glasgow.
Followed by a panel discussion with guests Vanessa Elston, Melanie Nazareth and Helen Locke (tbc).
