STRANGERS ON THE EARTH

STRANGERS ON THE EARTH

Tristan Cook · Spain/USA · 2016 · 96 mins · PG
IMDbRotten Tomatoes

If you liked WALKING THE CAMINO, you have to see this! FOUR STARS! There have been many works about seekers taking the 600-mile pilgrimage along Spain’s Santiago de Compostela Camino. But this transcendent new doc takes a broad, expansive view of those travelling the Camino, and it’s got another hook: it’s underscored by music from J.S. Bach’s six suites for solo cello. 

Cellist Dane Johansen is one of many pilgrims walking the route – with his cello strapped to his back. His intention was to perform Bach in some of the ancient churches along the path. But of course he has deeper, more mysterious reasons for this journey.

Spectacular images from the Camino are interwoven with philosophical reflections by a handful of other pilgrims, who hail from around the world. The result is enlightening, poignant and even occasionally funny.

But some of the most exquisite moments come when Johansen, clearly exhausted, performs Bach to a crowd of appreciative seekers who feel connected to something profound and lasting. 

And the final moments, filmed in Finisterre – a place the ancient Celts considered the end of the world – are deeply moving. –NOW Toronto

We are alone on this trip – take it, and this marvelous film, at your own pace. The Globe and Mail
