WALK WITH ME: THE TRIALS OF DAMON J. KEITH
(Not Rated 2017 130 min.)
Damon J. Keith was an ordinary “colored” man from Detroit. He became a controversial federal judge who would shape civil rights law and challenge a sitting president. Decades later, Judge Keith's rulings resonate in a nation still arguing about “which lives matter.” Now 94 years old and still a sitting U.S. Circuit Court judge, Judge Keith is a fascinating figure and his story may be the greatest story you’ve never heard.
This program also includes the short: Phil's Camino [27 minutes]
Free spirit Phil is a man living with Stage 4 cancer and dreaming of walking the 500 mile spiritual pilgrimage Camino de Santiago across Spain. Unable to make the trip, he does the next best thing: he builds a camino in the forest behind his house, starts to walk, and traces his progress on a map. Phil’s journey is one of hope, acceptance, and freedom, and is sure to inspire anyone who has ever dreamed of doing something that sounded impossible. Upon reaching ‘Santiago de Compostela’ — without ever leaving his backyard — Phil gets a clean scan and his doctors grant him a ‘chemo holiday’, or permission to miss one chemo treatment. He now has 28 days to go and walk the ancient route in Spain. Along the way he realizes his true pilgrimage is the one he travels within.
