Strangers on the Earth
One of Europe’s most popular pilgrimages, the Camino de Santiago attracts wayfarers of all stripes to walk its ancient paths in search of meaning. One such pilgrim is Dane Johansen, an American cellist who in 2014 ventured to walk the Camino, a nearly 600-mile journey, with his instrument on his back, performing music for his fellow pilgrims along the way. Using a combination of interviews with these travelers—who come from all over the world to walk the hallowed paths—and intimate scenes from the road, the documentary explores thorny philosophical matters and muses on the psychological dividends of the 30-day hike. Johansen’s mellifluous cello playing serves as a backdrop for the film. Strangers on the Earth is an evocative examination of the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of the concept of “journey” and the vital role it plays in the human experience.—Various sources
