ULTREYA – The Breakthrough
Ultreya is a roadmovie filmed in Spain, where a film crew is walking across the Iberian Peninsula, from Seville to Muxia, from Andalusia to Galicia through Extremadura and Castilla.
The performers will document the journey and show their true selves.
The intention of the film is to send a message to those who wish to experience the Santiago pilgrimage, those who have already been and those who are seeking adventure.
Along the “Via de la Plata” the impressive scenery will be the outline of an amazing cultural and emotional journey.
The movie documents the journey of a group of young people along the Way of Santiago. 45 days, walking for over 1100km, from Seville to Muxia.
From the sunny deserts of the deep south of Andalucía and Extremadura to the cold and rainy mountains of Galicia at the extreme Iberian north-west.
The group answers the call of a dear friend and leave unprepared without really knowing what is actually waiting for them.
They will never get into trouble, but they will have to face some important physical challenges. They will find deep gratification in the incredible feeling of freedom given by the constant close relationship with nature.
The plot intertwines some major aspects:
The normal documentary side often proposed in a comic, but always exhaustive way, but a mystery, lingers in history and someone who secretly follows the group, creates the necessary tension and support to the movie
The lives of the protagonists, that while impersonating themselves, will not be able to hide their truth, and often they'll live on the set of a Docu-Reality.
Physical and Spiritual change to which this experience brings those who undertake this walk, the protagonists and then their friends, allow us to immerse ourselves in the journey and understand why each year more than 200,000 people go to Santiago de Compostela.
The film offers an over view of what really changes and inspires those who undertake this ancient pilgrimage: immediate loss of prejudice, the spirit of solidarity, pain, often common, which will haunt you during the day, and after weeks the body that grows and change.
The Way joins the mind to the heart, deconstructs social classes, age no longer matters as your year of birth becomes nothing but a number on a document.
The chain of daily events, episodes and feelings, lasting 20, 30, 45 days, will reveal an incredible adventure that marks those who undertake it.
The film, which aims to be an educational roadmovie, will bring viewers of all ages, on the endless stages of the Via de la Plata.
The crew will travel through great monumental cities and pueblos blancos (small villages) or tiny villages, perched on the mountain ranges and arriving in Galicia. We'll show the real life of the modern pilgrim, that of the 3.0 pilgrims that are often connected, but above that, we show you the life of the pilgrim who indulges revealing the hidden mystery ... in a #yellow arrow !

• To promote other paths towards Santiago and deter the crowds from the French path.
• To offer help towards active associations particularly active and to refurbish and keep clean some ‘‘albergue’’ in very bad or abandoned conditions as Cañevaral or Aldeanueva
• We are sure about benefits that Santiago Way brings to the younger generations, we aim to make a good work promoting the pilgrimage of minors (**two Ultreya cast members are minors**) and that of the disabled, more as a social and cultural experience than the more personal, spiritual one.

Deus, qui Abraham puerum suum implevit
ab urbe Ur Chaldaeorum, muniens totis errore
ut esses dux populi Iudaici per desertum
petimus quod simus servi tui in nomine
et peregrinos Compostella.
Sit comitatur iter agebam difficultate
lassitudinem requiem defensionem periclitari Lorem semitam
umbram calor, lux in tenebris lucet, et consolare destituimur
eo proposito firma cum duce
incolumes pervenirent ad finem itineris,
gratiae et virtutum praemiis ditatus conservatoris redeamus ad nostros lares incolumis
plena salutis aeternae felicitatis.
Per Christum Dominum nostrum, Amen.
Iacobus apostolus Iesu, ora pro nobis.
Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis.
