A Discussion with the Award-Winning Filmmaker Annie O’Neil – Public Radio Tulsa

Our guest on this broadcast of ST is the acclaimed filmmaker Annie O’Neil, who is probably best known for her work on the award-winning documentary, “Walking the Camino: Six Ways to Santiago,” which is a detailed profile, directed by Lydia Smith, of six hikers making the difficult, 500-mile Camino De Santiago pilgrimage to the shrine of St. James in Galicia, Spain. After this film came out in 2013, O’Neil was contacted by one Phil Volker, a man living near Seattle with Stage 4 cancer. Eventually the two became friends, and O’Neil’s newest film is actually the product of this remarkable friendship. It’s called “Phil’s Camino” — and it will be screened tonight, Tuesday the 13th, at the All Souls Unitarian Church here in Tulsa, beginning at 7pm. the event happens in Emerson Hall.
