ReelHeART Film Fest 2007
A friend introduced me to the ReelHeART International Film Festival (RHIFF). She’s selfish like that. You see, she’s in one of the films featured.
She’s in a film entitled Las Peregrinas: The Women Who Walk.
You can see her here. She’s the one with the red socks.
A short description of the flick:
Las Peregrinas is a powerful, human and moving film experience. What is lacking spiritually, emotionally, and physically from the apparently secure and comfortable lives of modern North American women that compels them to voluntarily choose to suffer both the joys and anguish of walking hundreds of kilometers on a medieval pilgrimage route? This documentary is about 5 women who walk for 12 days on the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, in Spain. Each on their own inner journey of self-discovery, we are privy to their personal challenges and rewards.
The film fest runs till the 23rd and features all films. Yup, they are a truly open festival.
