General Information about Form and Content of the Project

The name „The Dark Star Quest“ originates from the medieval name for the end of the earth, which was used before the discovery of America. Until then the term Dark Star was used to refer to the end of the world (Finis terrae – Finisterre).

Conclusion

The idea to make documentaries about pilgrimages and pilgrimage sites in Europe, and about the interesting people and places encountered by pilgrims, came after filming in France in 2005. The author of the current project named his original plan Ways of the Third Age, because he himself is a filmmaker, and both in essence and physically he is in his third age (third millenium and also he is 60). By studying materials, and by consultations with participants of similar expeditions and other inspirations, this idea gradually developed so much that the original simple conception was was completely transformed. From its inception it was envisaged the records of this Quest will be made available to institutions, care-homes for the elderly, hospices, people in long-term hospitalization, for kids in various institutions and so on. Every attempt will be made to make these films etc accessible to as many people as possible, so that in this way they will feel part of the Quest and experience the places portrayed in the films. For this reason on the 22nd June 2007 the NGO „The Ways of the Third Age“ (IČO – 22 66 22 35) (with the original name for the author's project) was founded.

We are currently seeking foreign contacs, other NGO's and other organizations, who would be interested in helping to make this project a reality.

The Dark Star Quest is an autonomus part of this original plan, and the first of several future planned pilgrimages.
