On June 15, the documentary film by Jordi Roigé El Camino Ignaciano (86 min) was presented at La Casa del Cinema, in Vila Borghese, Rome. In this emblematic place of Italian cinema, a meeting point for the specialized press, the documentary was presented as part of the Ignatian Year events, as highlighted by Fr. Arturo Sosa sj at the premiere in the Vatican the day before.

The documentary will be in Spain on July 22 commercially and will be available to the Society of Jesus once the distribution rights have expired. Two versions will be presented to the public, one complete and the other reduced to 50 minutes, so that it can also be viewed on television.

It is a film that allows you to experience, like any other pilgrim, the visual and spiritual beauty of the itinerary that Ignacio de Loyola traveled from Azpeitia to Manresa in 1522.

Through the experiences of four pilgrims and a guide, the images of the documentary invite you to enjoy the architecture, the monuments, the landscapes, the fauna and flora, the gastronomy, the culture and the people of the worlds that make up the Ignatian Camino.

Mbassa Niang, Iñigo Medinilla, Iñaki Sánchez and Marta Burguet are the protagonists of the documentary, people from diverse cultures, regions and religions. The group’s guide is the Jesuit Josep Lluís Iriberri, director of the Ignatian Way Pilgrim’s Office, who for 10 years has accompanied pilgrims from all over the world. a
