The Lincoln Land Community College Arts and Humanities Department invites the public to view and discuss the film “The Way” on Thursday, March 22, beginning at 6 p.m. in the Trutter Center on the LLCC Springfield campus.
In “The Way” (2010), a father hears that his son was killed in an accident in the north of Spain while walking the over 1,000-year-old pilgrimage route, the Camino de Santiago. The father goes to Europe to claim his son’s body. Once there, he decides to complete his son’s pilgrimage to honor his son’s memory. This is the story of a man and the people he meets on the Camino de Santiago who find meaning and purpose while on pilgrimage. Speaker and facilitator is Joseph Hoff, LLCC professor of Spanish.
Prior to the film showing, the Trutter Museum will have culturally relevant artifacts from the Trutter collection on display in the reception area. Film series attendees are encouraged to come early to enjoy the art and history.
The event is the second installment in LLCC’s spring film and discussion series entitled “Through a Different Lens: Cultural Perspectives through Film,” which is hosted by Ashley Green and Paul Van Heuklom, LLCC professors of English, and Professor Hoff. The final film in the spring series, “Your Name” (Kimi No Na Wa) (2016) will be shown on April 19. There is no charge to attend.
