Premiere: The Way


The U.S. Embassy, ICON Film Distributors, KRS Film Distributors, and Embassy Cinemas are jointly organizing a fund-raising premiere on Monday, February 28 at 7.00pm in Cinema One at the Embassy Cinema Complex in Valletta. U.S. Ambassador Douglas Kmiec, celebrated actor Martin Sheen, and celebrated actor and producer Emilio Estevez will join Rev. Fr. Dionysius Mintoff and other distinguished guests to view the film and raise funds for the commendable activities of the Peace Lab.


'The Way', produced by Mr. Estevez, stars Martin Sheen as Tom, an American doctor who comes to St. Jean Pied de Port, France to collect the remains of his adult son, killed in the Pyrenees in a storm while walking The Camino de Santiago, also known as The Way of St. James. Driven by his profound sadness and desire to understand his son better, Tom decides to embark on the historical pilgrimage, leaving his 'California bubble life' behind. From the hardship experienced along 'The Way', Tom begins to learn what it means to be a citizen of the world again and discovers the difference between 'the life we live and the life we choose.' 'The Way' was filmed entirely in Spain and France along the actual Camino de Santiago. The film is suitable for all ages.


The U.S. Embassy is proud to offer the unique opportunity to view the film, before its official release, in the company of Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez. Tickets for the fundraising premiere are available free of charge but for a suggested donation of Euro15. Members of the public who are interested in attending the premiere of 'The Way' and supporting the activities of the Peace Lab should book their tickets by visiting the U.S. Embassy website at, or, or, downloading and completing the form and sending it with a cheque to the KRS Film Distributors Office (13, Zachary Street, Valletta VLT 1133).
