‘Everything in me said I had to do it.’ Martin de Vries decides, with barely any preparation worth mentioning, to walk the Camino, the famous pilgrims’ way to Santiago de Compostela. From Le Puy-en-Velay in central France to north-west Spain. He films himself while walking – his feet, his shadow, the path, the fields and woods – and tries to get to the bottom of why he set out on this adventure.
As he turns the camera on himself while walking, De Vries soberly wonders aloud about the trials and euphoric moments, about the beautiful morning light and the sound of the birds, about doubts and growing unease. He learns to be ‘in the moment’ and as he walks examines his motivations and inner demons with ever greater candour. A self-portrait in two million steps.

Martin de Vries, Netherlands, 2019, 85 min. Dutch spoken, without subtitles.
