He walked the Camino not knowing why… or how it would change his life forever.

From writer and director Bill Bennett, THE WAY, MY WAY is the charming and captivating true story of a stubborn, amusingly self-centred Australian man who decides to walk the famed 800-kilometre-long Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route through Spain. He doesn’t know why he’s doing it… but one step at a time, it will change him and his outlook on life forever.

THE WAY, MY WAYis based on Bill Bennett’s best-selling book of the same name (a 10th anniversary edition will be released in April to coincide with the film’s release) and stars Chris Haywood (Muriel’s Wedding, Kiss or Kill), Jennifer Cluff (Kiss or Kill, In a Savage Land), Pia Thunderbolt (Three Thousand Years of Longing, Here Out West), and Laura Lakshmi (TV’s Colin from Accounts, Home and Away).

The highly influential elder statesman and legend of the Camino   Johnnie Walker Santiago calls THE WAY, MY WAY “the most authentic representation of the experience of the Camino to Santiago to date. You will laugh, cry, identify and above all you will be inspired by this film. It truly presents the transformational nature of the Camino experience…”.

The film is also proudly supported by the Australian Friends of the Camino.

The Camino de Santiago is renowned throughout the world and is a network of paths that lead to the tomb of St James in Santiago de Compostela, in the northwest of Spain, that has become a spiritual experience for many of those that make the journey. Around 6 million people a year walk at least some of the Camino, with a significant annual growth rate. Australia ranks in the top 10 participating countries.

Told from the perspective of a five-time pilgrim, THE WAY, MY WAY is an authentic and personal feature film and beautifully captures the spirit of adventure, self-reflection and what is truly important in life.

THE WAY, MY WAY will be released in cinemas by Maslow Entertainment on May 16, 2024.  For more information on the film, please visit
