Lucky Day is a 16mm film in which Roman Ondak explores the contemporary possibilities of pilgrimage in a secular context. The film follows a man who tosses a large number of coins into a fountain, in a somewhat grandiose gesture of applying for luck. The film was shot in Santiago de Compostela, a traditional site of pilgrimage since medieval times and still much frequented today. The fountain into which the film’s protagonist spills the coins is the fountain of Praza de Fonseca.
